A5 - M1 Link Road
Otherwise known as Dunstable Northern bypass, this major road scheme managed by the Highways Agency went through the Public Inquiry stage early in 2012.
Construction has begun on the scheme, which meets the A5 near the junction with A505 Leighton Buzzard bypass before heading east (with an intermediate junction for the A5120) to a new Junction 11a on the M1 Motorway just south of Chalton.
Completion is expected 2016/17. This road would form the northern boundary of proposed urban extensions to Houghton Regis, and is part-funded by the council and developers for Houghton Regis North Site 1. For more details, please visit the Highways Agency (link opens in new window) website.
