Bid race starts for £40m M1-A6 link road


Central Bedfordshire Council has called up firms to bid for its planned 2.7-mile M1-A6 link road project.

The new strategic link road to the north of Luton will run from the A6 Barton Road to junction 11a of the motorway

It will include building a new section of dual and single lane carriageway and a bridge over the railway mainline into London.

There will be junctions to a proposed new Rail Freight Interchange at Sundon and to proposed new housing developments.

Subject to planning permission and funding, construction will commence in March 2020 on the two-year project.

Prequalification documents are available from the council’s procurement site.
