The bypass is a single width carriageway located to the west of
Bedford town and Kempston, Bedfordshire. at 5.1 km in length from
the bypass currently links the A428 Bromham Bypass on the east side
of the river to meet the A421 Trun Road at Woburn Road, Kempston.
Planning permission for the final section of the bypass was granted
under application 11/02114/EIA. This planning permission completes
the final section of the bypass to link the A428 with the A6 at the
roundabout junction with Clapham Road. Works on this final section
of the bypass have yet commenced on site.
The main purpose of the scheme is to link existing sections of
road around the Bedford and Kempston area, substantially completing
the strategy for Western and Southern bypasses of the towns, By
doing so this will improve the efficiency, safety and reliability
of journeys around the area, relieve the community of through
traffic and improve accessibility.
Please note that not all the plans are available at this time as
they are in the process of being scanned. If you have any questions
