London Road, Biggleswade
Vectos Infrastructure was appointed as the Highway Consultant to undertake the detailed design for the proposed improvements to the A6001 London Road and its junctions between the A1 and Saxon Drive. VI formed part of the Client’s design team, successfully interfacing the road improvements with Development access.
The highway improvements form a major part of CBC’s aspirations for the future growth of the town and surrounding area by increasing capacity of the local road network in this vicinity, seen as a key component in strengthening the town centre economy and the creation of new homes, jobs and businesses in the Biggleswade region.
The highway improvement scheme includes modifying the A6001 London Road from a single carriageway to dualling sections for a distance of approximately 400m from the A1 trunk road to the south.
The highway works are to be delivered in phases to reflect a phased redevelopment programme for the existing retail park tenants. VI provide advice to the Client and procured an approved phased highway scheme to match the Client’s delivery timescales, which included flexibility on the extent of each highway phase.
