Overnight closures to A505 between Hitchin and Luton

If you’re planning a late-night airport run to Luton this week, plan ahead - the A505 from Hitchin will be closed from 10pm for resurfacing works, starting tonight.

The five nights of work will concentrate on a stretch of the trunk road just outside Luton at the Butterfield business park roundabout.

If you’re heading out of Luton, the road will be shut from its junction with Cannon Lane, near the swimming pool complex, as far as Lilley Bottom.

But from Hitchin the road will be shut from the Pirton Road junction and traffic will be diverted towards Barton and via the A6, A507 and A600.

The closures will be in place from 10pm each evening to 5am the following day.

If all goes to plan, the work should be finished by 5am on Saturday.

We always do everything we can to ensure that we keep disruption to an absolute minimum while they are being carried out but do apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
