Reminder: Cranfield Road bridge closure

 

Our project to widen the A421 into dual carriageway will need two bridges to be extended: the Cranfield Road bridge, plus a footbridge near Hulcote that will safely take pedestrians, horse riders and cyclists over the wider A421 and the M1 (via four public rights of way).

 

Cranfield Road Bridge Closure

To extend the permanent bridge on Cranfield Road, we’ll need to close it from May 2019. The bridge is expected to be closed for up to 14 months whilst the improvements are done. We are working with our contractor to reduce this period, if possible.

Diversions:

The M1 road will be open during these planned closures, or visit our website for diversion details. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and we thank you for your patience during the roadworks

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 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.
