Roadworks are due to start soon on the above roads as part of Bedford Borough Council’s highway works programme.

The works will consist of resurfacing the footway and are planned to start on 3rd October and take around 10 working days to complete, as listed below:

Phase  Works/Traffic
 Start Dates  End Date  Working
Footway works –
Frome Close and

(alley behind 6-16
Torridge Rise)
 Footway closure  3rd October
14th October

Signs will be put up at the ends of the site which will provide the most up to date information if the programme changes.

Please note the following during the works:

  • Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.
  • All site vehicles are fitted with reversing beepers and flashing lights so please be careful when approaching the site.
  • Footway resurfacing operations are noisy and we apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause you. The works have been programmed in co-ordination with our Streetworks teams to ensure that they are carried out at the best times to reduce traffic disruption.
  • Before we close the footway, we may carry out some minor works that may mean that some areas are coned off or temporary traffic lights may be used.

If you wish to discuss working arrangements relating to this project please telephone the Highways Helpdesk on 01234 718003 or email us at

The helpdesk will direct any queries to the relevant officer to respond as appropriate.
