Road closure as Network Rail continues to upgrade the railway in Bedford

Ford End Road bridge in Bedford will be closed overnight to allow Network Rail to resurface a section of road after carrying out investigation work into the structure.

Investigative work has taken place ahead of an upgrade to the bridge which will begin from February, 2018 as part of the Midland Main Line improvement programme, which will see the line through Bedford electrified up to Kettering and Corby

The bridge will be closed in both directions from 20:00 on Tuesday 28, November until 06:00 on Wednesday, 29 November. Pedestrian access across the bridge will be maintained throughout the work and a clearly signposted diversion will be in place for motorists.

Anyone wishing to find out more about the work can call the Network Rail National Helpline on 03457 11 41 41
