Vital works to Goldington Road

Bedford Borough Council has announced that vital maintenance works to resurface a significant stretch of Goldington Road will begin on 12th September.

The works are expected to last 2 weeks and will require overnight closures between the Newnham Avenue and Polhill Avenue junction through to Riverfield Drive. The road will remain open during the day.

The works are part of the Council’s £5million highways maintenance programme for 2011-12 and will ensure a safe and high-quality road surface for drivers and cyclists. 

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “This significant stretch of Goldington Road is being resurfaced and its condition significantly improved as part of our commitment to improving the roads across Bedford Borough.

“We have allocated £5million towards improving and repairing our roads in the borough and this project demonstrates our continuing commitment to proactively improving the condition of the roads across our network.


“We are making efforts to minimise disruption and inconvenience by carrying out the majority of these works at night. However, I would still ask drivers to avoid the area if possible during the works. If not, please leave extra time for your journey while we carry out these necessary repairs.”

 

The overnight closure will be in place between 9pm and 6am, Monday to Friday. Access to property will be maintained wherever possible. However, there may be some small delays when equipment or materials are moved, or when the carriageway is being resurfaced. Similarly, although the road will remain open during the day, there may be some restrictions in place to allow minor works to take place.

The Council would also like to take this opportunity to inform local residents and businesses that work to resurface St Mary’s Street is scheduled to take place in October. Further information will be made available shortly.
