Luton's Telford Way Closed This Weekend
Drivers around Luton are being warned one of the town's busiest roads will be closed this weekend.
It's because of the next stage of work on the Luton and Dunstable Busway scheme.
Telford Way will be closed from 10pm today (Friday May 25th) until 5am on Monday to allow the installation of a new bridge deck and beams.
Drivers will face an "extended diversion" using the New Bedford Road, Stockingstone Road, Vauxhall Way, Crawley Green Road, Park Viaduct and the A505 Dunstable Road.
As a contingency measure, if works are not completed, the same stretch of the Telford Way could be closed again overnight (10pm-5am) through until Friday (1st June).
Cllr Dave Taylor, who's responsible for the Busway told Heart: "We wish to apologise for the inconvenience caused. Motorists are warned to expect delays in the town centre over this weekend and to plan accordingly and use alternative transport wherever possible.
It is essential both the bridge works at Telford Way and the junction works at Guildford Street are carried out as quicly as possible in order to avoid potentially more serious disruption to the arrival of the Olympic Torch Relay and the Love Luton 2012 Festival in July.
The Council and its' main contractor BAM Nuttall will do everything possible to keep traffic moving as freely as possible."
