Work is now finished in Vicarage Street to renovate roads and provide a new bus lane and shared area highway.
The scheme was instigated and paid for by the University of Bedfordshire as a way to provide a safe shared area which links the new student accommodation to the main campus site.
The road is block paved, so is all level and has no kerbs.
Rod Black, Interim Highways Development Control Manager, said: “The new shared area highway provides easy access to Vicarage Street and the University for buses and pedestrians.
“The street improvement programme has also allowed us to upgrade Vicarage Road, bringing it up to a far better state of repair than it was previously.”
The new bus lane will run from the UKCCA entrance to the junction with Lea Road, where buses will join Park Street.
Traffic can no longer enter Vicarage Street via Park Street and exit onto St Mary’s Road.
Any drivers accessing Vicarage Street from Park Street can enter St. Ann’s Road for the Iceland car park and also drive along Lea Road to use Vicarage Street car park but no further.
Motorists can still drive to the UKCCA from St Mary’s Road but traffic can go no further past that point.
Planters will be installed to finalise the landscaping, while bus stop flags are also set to be put in place soon.
