Highways and Transport Report

In a Highways and Transport report to a Houghton Regis Council Committee* on  17 October 2016, it is mentioned that the A5120 Houghton Road was resurfaced, and that a resurfacing scheme for the High Street has been programmed for 2017/18.

33 potholes have been repaired since the middle of July, 9 more to be done.

Bridgette, from their school crossing patrol team was nominated for a Pride of Houghton Award earlier this month.

A new real bus time display is now on Houghton Road,  adjacent to Townsend farm Road. A new bus stop and flag are in Sundon Road after an accident destroyed the previous one. Improvements to a bus stop flag and cases had been made in Blackburn Road. A real time display was a possibility they are looking into for the shelter opposite Morrisons.

But vandalism of bus shelters in Houghton Regis had continued, and 4 large glass panels had been replaced with perspex recently.
