Last Major Road Closures

Last Planned Major Road Closures for Western Bypass Project

 

The last planned major road closures taking place for the Western Bypass project are on the horizon, as works continue to progress well. The final section of the bypass will complete a link all the way from the A421 south of Bedford to the A6 heading north of the town, and will divert traffic away from the Town Centre when it opens.

 

These last major road closures will affect road users of the A6 north of Bedford and mark a major milestone in the project, which is currently on track to be delivered on schedule in the first half of 2016.

 

The road closures along Paula Radcliffe Way and Clapham Road will take place overnight for 15 days at the location, from 20:00 until 06:00 between Monday 20th July until Saturday 8th August. Diversion signs will be in place directing traffic away from the area after 20:00 until 06:00 the next morning so that minimal disruption is experienced whilst final resurfacing works take place.

 

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said “I am very pleased that the Western Bypass Project is being delivered on time and in budget, and that these last major road closures will soon be over. Thank you to residents and road users who have been patient despite the disruption whilst the works have taken place along the route. Rest assured, the closures will soon be over and out of the way, as progress towards completion of this crucial project continues apace.”
