Roads Minister Andrew Jones has officially opened a new road link on the M1.
The new roundabout on Junction 10A will improve journeys to Luton Airport and the local area.
The scheme received £25 million government funding and will allow easier access to Luton Airport, reduce congestion, and open up future housing and employment developments in the area.
During the visit, the Minister also put the first spade in the ground on the Woodside Link road to mark the start of the main construction phase.
He said: “These schemes will make it easier for people to access Luton Airport and the M1, providing better journeys for residents and businesses and supporting more housing and jobs. “The government is committed to investing in faster and more reliable transport links. These road schemes are part of our long term economic plan to deliver benefits for everyone.”
The new Junction 10A scheme has received £25 million government funding through the Regional Growth Fund. The total cost of the scheme is £30 million.
