A5141 Link in Bedford

The A5141 is a route in Bedford. It used to bypass the A6 through the centre of Bedford, but in 2013 it took over the A6 (former A418) Ampthill Road as far as the A421 Southern bypass.

County Bridge over the River Great Ouse

Heading up Ampthill Road from the junction with the Southern Bypass, it meets the A5134 and B530 in Kempston. At the Hospital it TOTSOs left with the A5140 continuing ahead along Ampthill Road; this is where the A5141 originally started. Heading past the Hospital along Britannia Road, it meets a T-junction, where the A5141 turns right, and the B531 is to the left. Quickly afterwards, outside the County Hall, there is another TOTSO, with straight on being a spur to the A600.

The A5141 crosses the Great Ouse on County Bridge. At Midland Road, the road turns left at a mini roundabout, before a sharp right at Bedford Station's car park. It crosses the A6 Bromham Road (former A4280, former A428), before ending back on that road (which has taken a longer route to the east but without the weight restrictions we have) at a roundabout.
