Ahead of the 10k road race this weekend, road closures have been announced for Sunday, June 18.

Vehicular access to and from properties may be affected for a short time while the race passes.

Traffic will be excluded from only the runner’s side of the road but this will affect side streets off of the route. As the race route uses some of Bedford’s best roads there will be delays so please plan any journeys with the route and diversions in mind.

Newnham Avenue - 9.05-9.30am

Polhill Avenue - 9.05-10.05am

Kimbolton Road - 9.15-10.05am
