The Journey Begins Towards Transport Solutions

Bedford Borough Council is taking the necessary steps to move towards a less congested and smooth transport operation for the Borough. Key stakeholders, who influence Bedford’s long-term transport vision, are to meet tomorrow (Thursday), at Borough Hall, to discuss plans for an outstanding transport vision.

The morning forum will provide the opportunity to reach agreement on the transport challenges facing Bedford, so that they can be addressed effectively.

Chairing the forum will be Bedford Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Environment & Transport, Charles Royden, who commented: “I believe fundamental to a successful resolution to our transport congestion in Bedford is the completion of the bypass and the provision of an additional river crossing at Batts Ford. This will allow us to consider some exciting new provisions, such as the pedestrianisation of the High Street.”

The Mayor of Bedford, Dave Hodgson said: “Improving local transport links will allow us to maximise the Borough’s potential as a great place to live, work and visit. The gathering on Thursday will be a thoroughly useful meeting of minds, and will enable us to start work on developing the policies which will address the challenges we face.”

The opening of the new western bypass has recently seen the A6 re-routed and the High Street is set to become the A600 – out of government regulation.

Bedford Borough Council is looking forward to working with all the organisations that provide transport within the Borough.
