Highways Look to Improve Cycle Routes

Bedfordshire Highways are working on finalising a plan to improve a cycling route between High Street, Houghton Regis, and All Saints Academy. 

The scheme is likely to include:
 widening the shared footway and cycleway on the western (or northern) side of Houghton Road from the existing pelican crossing near the school entrance, to a point to tie in with the 20mph zone on the High Street.  Tree foilage will need to be cut back, bus shelters may need repositioning, the crossing may be converted to a Toucan crossing.

A provisional start date for the work is February 2013.
