    Work starts on Monday 4 March 2024.

    We’ll be resurfacing the A1 northbound between A1(M) junction 10 (Stotfold) and Biggleswade South from Monday 4 March to Thursday 3 April overnight between 8pm and 5am, weeknights only, weather permitting.


    To do the work safely, we will need to close the A1 in one direction at a time, and divert traffic as follows:

    • Drivers going northbound will exit the A1M at Stotfold, take the A507 Ampthill Road westbound, then the A6 northbound at Clophill. Follow the A421 eastbound from Elstow Interchange, then exit onto the A603 Sandy Road and Bedford Road eastbound to rejoin the A1 at Sandy.
    • Drivers going southbound will follow this diversion in reverse.
