Britannia Road - Roadworks Reminder.

Improvement works on Britannia Road started this weekend. The works will be complete in early 2020.

During the works, Britannia Road will be open one way to traffic going from Ampthill Road to Kempston Road. There will be a signed diversion route in place throughout the works, around Kingsway and St Mary’s Street.

There will be some pavement restrictions in place to allow the works to take place safely, but this route will continue to be open to pedestrians through the works.

The bus stop on Britannia Road southbound will also be temporarily out of use while these works are ongoing, with bus services 2, 42 and 44 using a temporary stop on Ampthill Rd, at the junction with Britannia Rd. These bus services will also not use the bus stops on Kingsway and Kingsway link during the works. For revised timetables for these services check the Bedford Borough Council timetable page or the operator’s website

The works are not expected to have any operational impact on Bedford Hospital.

Britannia Road runs past Bedford Hospital South Wing, and links Ampthill Road and Kempston Road. The works will widen the road and create extra lanes, providing more space for traffic, and deliver major changes to the road layout to help the traffic flow better. These include moving the existing traffic lights and crossing to the junction with King’s Place, and upgrading all the lights along this road so they can ‘communicate’ and keep the road moving. There will also be changes to layout of the main Hospital car park and existing drop-off areas.
