Where we can’t help

We’re responsible for most roads in Central Bedfordshire, but there are some privately owned roads and some roads in new housing estates are still owned by the developer.

Highways England (link opens in new window) are responsible for fixing problems on the motorways and other major roads like the A5 in Dunstable. You will need to report any problems on these roads or pavements to Highways England (link opens in new window).
