A5

A505 Dunstable Northern Bypass 16 May 2017

Construction of a new dual two lane road from the current terminus of the A505 north of Dunstable to a new junction 11a on the M1, with a connection to the planned A505 Luton Northern Bypass. Construction began in February 2015, with an estimated completion date of June 2017 at the latest, subject to successful bridge lifts and good weather.

The scheme is also known as the A5-M1 Link. On opening, it took the number A5, with the former A5 through Dunstable being downgraded.

An upgrade of the A5 between the existing dual carriageway at Tamworth and the A38/M6 Toll junction. The upgrade is a mostly off-line widening of the A5 to dual two lane standard. It is not clear whether any intermediate junctions will be grade separated. The scheme will also add an underpass at the A5/A38 roundabout.
