Milton Keynes Council carrying out significant highway improvement works

Milton Keynes Council will be putting in place a full road closure on the A422 between Chicheley roundabout and its junction with the A428 at Bromham from the 5th – 18th of August.

There is likely to be increased traffic flow on the A421, as people divert away from the A428 and A422.

The road should reopen 19th August. The closure will be in place 24hrs a day. 

The works will include:

  • Significant structural and waterproofing to Swans River Bridge, which requires closure across the whole carriageway
  • Highway resurfacing. Some of this work is being completed on behalf of Bedford Borough Council as the resurfacing will be in their Borough. Bedford are funding this part of the works

Milton Keynes Council has organised two drop in information sessions to answer any questions on the works being undertaken, traffic management, the diversion route and to help people plan their journeys during this period:
