Number of roadworks 2019-2021

The request was successful.

Dear Bedford Borough Council,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to request the number of street works and road works carried out by the council for both the 2019/20 and 2020/21 financial years.

If possible, I would also like to know the longest-running works that took place in both of these periods.

Yours faithfully,
Jamie Dixon
