A town is set for a programme of road improvements.

Central Bedfordshire Council will be carrying out a programme of road improvements in the centre of Stotfold this summer as part of a country-wide investment in the highways network.

Exhibitions will be held at Stotfold Town Council Chambers on Friday, February 28 (10am-5pm), and Saturday, March 1 (10am-4pm), to give residents the chance to find out more about the proposals and comment on them before work is started.

Councillor Brian Spurr, Executive Member for Sustainable Communities, said: “We want to get the best possible value for residents from the developer money assigned to the town, so we’ve planned a series of improvements that should make a difference to residents and businesses there. We’re also undertaking other already planned works at the same time to make sure we minimise disruption.

“For the time being, we’d love it if people went along to look at the plans. The work won’t be starting until the summer, but we want everyone to be fully aware before it all starts. We’ve also set up a dedicated webpage and Facebook page for people to keep up to date with news. These will obviously be updated more when the work starts, but it’s a great way to keep in touch.”

The improvements have been designed to improve the main driving routes into Stotfold, as well as developing more accessible routes to the town centre.

Work will also be completed to upgrade street lighting on Stotfold High Street and carriageway resurfacing will take place at various locations throughout the town.
