£20m Awarded for Road to Divert Traffic From Houghton Regis Town Centre

Funding for a new road to connect  the Woodside industrial estate at Porz Avenue, Houghton Regis, to the planned new M1 junction 11a has been agreed. 

The award of £20m was announced this week, among other road plans for the South Midlands, by Dan Rogerson MP, Minister for Water, Forestry and Rural Affairs.

Cllr Alan Winter, Houghton Regis Town Council, "It's great that the funding is secured. This road will really help to divert traffic away from Houghton Regis town centre. Once built will it will seriously help management of traffic that currently leaves Houghton Regis via the Sundon Road. Back in 2011 I video'd traffic going through Houghton Regis. In rush hour it used to take a good 25 minutes to get from Tesco, Dunstable Road, to the Red Lion, Bedford Road. I would expect massive improvements in a few years time."
