A5130 Woburn - Northfield
Woburn

The A5130 was a road heading to Milton Keynes from the south east. It used to head further up the east side of the new town but that was downgraded a few years before.

The road started at a TOTSO on the A4012 (now B5704) in Woburn, Bedfordshire, and headed west along Newport Road. The fields give way to the woods of Old Wavendon Heath, where the road has obviously been upgraded, before the road crosses the county boundary into the town of Woburn Sands. We ran along the High Street which becomes Station Road. The Marston Vale Line is crossed by the station at a level crossing and the road quickly becomes more rural.

The road wound past the village of Wavendon before it ended roundabout on the A421 on the edge of the Milton Keynes urban area.

History

The A5130 was created out of part of the former A50 between Newport Pagnell and Hockliffe. The A5130 used to extend past Kingston to meet the A4146 and A509 at Northfield Roundabout; however this was downgraded to discourage through traffic around 2010. The former section is being bypassed by Fen Street and has been traffic calmed so that Milton Keynes can expand over it. As part of the renumbering surrounding the Dunstable bypass, it was downgraded to unclassified, though previous talk was about downgrading it to B Road.
