Completed projects in Dunstable
The Woodside Link connects Houghton Regis and the industrial estates in Dunstable to a new M1 junction 11a.
It provides access to a new development area (link opens in new window) north of Houghton Regis, where 5,600 new homes are to be built and 30 hectares of employment land developed by 2031.
This new road takes heavy goods vehicles away from Houghton Regis and Dunstable, reducing congestion and improving air quality.
At the northern end, Woodside Link connects with the new M1 motorway junction 11a. Another section of dual carriageway connects it with Sundon Road.
The A5-M1 Link (Dunstable Northern Bypass) (link opens in new window) is a dual carriageway connecting the M1 at a new junction 11a north of Luton, to the A5 at Thorn Turn, north of Dunstable.
It runs between the A5 (at Thorn Turn, just north of its existing junction with the A505) and the M1 at the new Junction 11A (to the south of the existing Toddington Motorway Services Area).
The A5-M1 Link increases accessibility between Milton Keynes and M1 Junction 9, making journey times shorter and more reliable for vehicles travelling a long distance.
It reduces congestion and takes traffic away from local roads in Dunstable and Houghton Regis.
It was constructed by Highways England, with some funding from us.
