The closures were due to be in both directions on the A1081, between the Percival Way roundabout and the B653 traffic lights, and from the Kimpton Road roundabout to the B653 traffic lights.

The closures were to allow complete reinstatement works to take place following the installation of the DART (Direct Air-Rail Transit) Gateway Bridge last year, and enable condition surveys of the road to be undertaken.

Once operational in 2021, the £225m Luton DART will speed travellers from Luton Airport Parkway station to the terminal of London Luton Airport in under four minutes.

The project is being funded and delivered by Luton Council’s airport company, London Luton Airport Ltd (LLAL).

Passengers will be able to travel between St Pancras and London Luton Airport in 30 minutes using the fastest trains, then transferring easily to the Luton DART.
