A428 Bedford western bypass 7 December 2009

Bypassing the road which currently passes through Kempston with a single-carriageway bypass on a new alignment. It will connect the about-to-be-uprgaded A421 at Marsh Leys Junction to the A428 just west of Great Denham (the northernmost mile or so is already open as access to industrial areas).

The road will have 5 at-grade roundabouts (including the northern terminus), 2 pedestrian/cyleway underpasses and a 330m-long viaduct crossing the River Great Ouse.

A northward extension to meet A6 is in planning.
