Bedford Borough Council is due to carry out carriageway resurfacing works on the High Street. The area to be treated is from Bedford Road to New Road. In order to allow the work to be carried out quickly and safely it will be necessary to close the High Street to traffic.

The surfacing works will commence on 10th November 2017 and will be completed on 27th November 2017 with an expected duration of 12 days.

The road closure will be in place between 9:00am and 3:30pm. In order to access all areas to be resurfaced the Borough Council must insists that no vehicles are parked on the highway during the road closure period on the days mentioned above. Please note that should there be obstructive vehicles left on the highway, whilst every attempt will be made to contact the owner, they will be moved to ensure the work can be carried out efficiently. The Borough Council can recharge the cost of moving an obstructive vehicle to the owner.

The closure will affect the school and public transport services in Great Barford, therefore the works have been restricted to between 09:00 – 15:30 to reduce the impact on the schools and the 27 public transport service. During these hours the 27 service will be diverted along New Road > Roxton Road before continuing on with its normal route. It has been requested that a temporary stop be served by The Anchor in both directions so that people can board and alight the transport at either end of the closure. Grant Palmer will publicise this temporary change to service on their vehicles and locally

Further information will be delivered directly to residents and local businesses affected by the works.
