Walking the new western bypass from Biddenham to Bedford on a sunny Easter Monday afternoon with Storm Katie’s tailwinds behind us was a pleasure.
It was a bit tougher on the return journey with Katie’s winds trying to hold us back. And the errant BBQ wasn’t fired up so no chance of refreshments to help us on our way.
But not long now till a peaceful walk along that route will be disturbed by the traffic for which the bypass was designed.

Looking west toward the roundabout that will lead into the housing development
Not fired up so no sausages today!
There’s just something about an abandoned BBQ by a soon to be busy road – the road builders must have spent happy hours here
Further toward the roundabout which will lead into the housing development in due course

Closer to the roundabout near which are due to be playing fields

Thanks so much for posting these photos – very informative. But isn’t the road narrow? How many years (months?) will it be before the Borough Council realises the new road should have been made much wider – and maybe even a dual carriageway?
Yes, it is – and as far as your second question is concerned it’s a case of watch this space, or perhaps lack of space!
