Dunstable's new M1-A5 junction and link road open
After three years of works, the A5-M1 link road and new M1 junction 11a are open.
Traffic began using the long-awaited £160m road, also known as the Dunstable northern bypass, from 06:00 BST.
The 2.8-mile (4.5km) dual carriageway connects the M1 to the A505 junction on the A5.
It also joins up with the Woodside link road, which opened a month ago.
It is hoped the bypass will ease congestion through the centre of Dunstable.
