Work is still underway on a number of traffic calming measures

Work has also been progressing on the A421 Dualling Scheme, with over 80% of the carriageway works now completed. Adding that it is on track for completion before the winter.

The Highways team has also been out and about with their Super-Vac machine to clean and unblock nearly 2,000 gullies.

Councillor Ian Dalgarno, Central Bedfordshire Council’s executive member for Community Services, said:

“Right now our highways teams are working hard to ensure that our key workers can get to work safely, and medicine, equipment and deliveries can get to where it is needed most.

“While roads are quieter, we’ve been prioritising essential repairs, such as potholes, lampposts and pavement defects, to ensure that the county’s roads remain safe and serviceable.

“There’s been a huge amount achieved already, with much more to come, as we have been continuing to plan a programme for the full year ahead.”

Work is still underway on a number of lining schemes and traffic calming measures. Residents can report any issues on Central Bedfordshire roads on the council’s website.
