Bromham Road is set to be resurfaced over the course of 6 weeks, starting on 1st October and finishing by 9th November.
The resurfacing works will cover Bromham Road from Dame Alice Street to just past Dynevor Road. There will also be some drainage repair and kerbing replacement carried out during the course of these works, as well as preparatory works for future traffic signal upgrades at the Union Street and Greyfriars junctions.
As many local residents and businesses know, Bromham Road is a major traffic route for Bedford. As such, the Council has planned these vital resurfacing and repair works to minimise disruption to road users, and people in the area.
The works will be carried out overnight from 8pm-6am, with the road re-opened during the day to minimise traffic disruptions. The works will also be carried out in three phases which will limit the amount of Bromham Road that will be closed at any one time and allow for suitable traffic diversions.
Phase One runs from Shakespeare Road to Conduit Road, Phase Two from Conduit Road to just past Greyfriars and Phase Three from that junction to Dame Alice Street.
Cllr Charles Royden, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Transport said “We apologise for any inconvenience this road closure will cause; these are crucial works for this major road in and out of Bedford. Local residents and businesses will receive letters alerting them to the works, and on-site notice boards and signage placed on major junctions in the town will give advance notice of this closure.”
