Roads and pavements

We are responsible for the improvement, maintenance and development of the public highway network within Bedford Borough.

This excludes the A1, the A421 and the A428 (from the A1 to the Borough boundary) which are trunk roads and the responsibility of Highways England.

Not all roads are public highways. Some are privately owned and may have special conditions attached to their use. 

The Highway Code is guidance for all road users and helps you understand more about road markings, traffic signs and general road safety.

If you need any further information please contact our Highways Helpdesk on
