Last Major Road Closures
Last Planned Major Road Closures for Western Bypass
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.”
