The northern section of the Bedford Western Bypass will be officially opened Monday (April 25).

Mayor Dave Hodgson will cut the ribbon of the new road, linking the A4280 at Biddenham with the A6 at the Clapham roundabout, which completes a north-south route bypassing Bedford.

This completes the Western Bypass, known as Frank Branston Way.

The bypass first appeared in local and national plans and strategies 50 years ago.
