Latest updates: bus services, waste collection and gritting

We work hard to keep you safe on the roads, moving around the borough and to keep services running whatever the weather. Use the tabs below to see the latest service updates for gritting, public transport, school transport, adult transport and waste collection.

Forecast from noon (06 Feb 2023) until noon (07 Feb 2023)

This afternoon, it will dry and fine with plenty of wintry sunshine. A few bands of high cloud are also likely to move in at times. Tonight, it will continue dry and largely clear, with little to no cloud around. Winds will continue light for most, allowing for mist and fog to develop quite widely later in the night. A similar day tomorrow, with high pressure dominating the weather. Dense mist and fog will be slow to lift but, later on, it will be another calm and dry day with plenty of bright spells. Road conditions: RSTs will fall below zero tonight. See tables for details. High confidence overall, but low confidence on the exact minimum RSTs due to uncertainties regarding mist and fog formation.

Gritting of Bedford Borough roads

You can see a plan of the roads which are gritted in Bedford Borough, on the Winter Gritting Plan . You can also find out more about winter gritting on the gritting your roads section or the gritting FAQs blog.

We have reciprocal arrangements in place with neighbouring Councils to ensure that we all make best use of our gritting vehicles. Therefore, some of our gritters cross into neighbouring administrative areas, and some of our roads will be covered by our neighbours gritters. Full details of these arrangements can be seen in our Winter Maintenance Policy document .


School Closures

Details of school closures in the event of bad weather conditions can be found on the school closures webpage.
