ROADWORKS causing huge traffic jams in Houghton Regis could be finished tonight (Thurs), a spokesperson for the National Grid has said.

Motorists have suffered hold-ups due to temporary traffic lights in Park Road North for several days during emergency gas main repairs.

The National Grid spokesperson said a leak on an old metal main had now been fixed, leaving only filling in and resurfacing to be completed.
