Central Bedfordshire’s location at the heart of the motorway network has contributed to the growth and development of the logistics sector.
Almost 8000 people are employed across more than 500 companies including major brands Amazon, Mini-Clipper and Fed-Ex.
We are now supporting over £200m in investment in transport improvements including the M1-A5 link road and Woodside Connection at Dunstable and Houghton Regis. This new road and motorway junction will provide fast access to the motorway network for businesses and residents and enable improvements to Dunstable Town Centre. The new East West rail route will come right through the heart of Central Bedfordshire, creating easy East/West transport links by train for the first time in 50 years.
