Cranfield Road Bridge closed for 12 months

To extend the permanent road bridge on Cranfield Road, the road closed on 13 May 2019 for up to 12 months whilst the improvements are done. We are working with our contractor to reduce this period, if possible.

The route 51 cycle diversion signs will be in place ahead of the Cranfield Road closure and these diversion routes are also on the website.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and we thank you for your patience during the roadworks.
