Husborne Crawley

M1 J13 / A421 and Salford Road night closures from 23 October 2017 for 8 weeks

We will be undertaking a complex phased programme of works to replace and upgrade the road markings around the three roundabouts and associated slip roads at this location and renew the high friction surface for enhanced safety. These will be completed under night time closures from Monday to Friday 9pm – 6am over 8 weeks, staring on 23 October 2017. At no time will the junction be completely closed as we with be working in phased sections, although this will involve clearly signed local diversions through the duration of the works.

 If you have any further queries please contact us as below

Husborne Crawley is a small parish within Central Bedfordshire with a total population of about 200. Much of the village is a conservation area and many of the buildings are listed.

It has a beautiful 13th Century Church, a highly successful Lower School, a much loved pub, "The White Horse" and a newly-refurbished, well used village hall, called "The Reading Room".

The Parish Council consists of seven full members supported by a stipendiary Clerk. Meetings are open to all residents.  

Husborne Crawley Lower School recently raised funding for a defibrillator. This is now up and running for emergency use for anyone in need of it not just for the school children. It is situated on the outside of the school near the big porch. When ringing 999, the caller will be notified where the machine is and the user will be given a code which unlocks the machine then the machine itself talks the user through the procedure. The ambulance service will have been advised automatically and will arrive as soon as possible to assess the situation.

Woburn Safari Park and M1 Junction 13 are within easy reach of the village.
