Roundabout on A600 at Shortstown
Roundabout on A600 at Shortstown
This roundabout gives access to the southern end of Shortstown and was funded for as part of recent expansion of the original village west of the A600. More significant expansion is planned for the old airfield site to the east, and the original intention was that this would be the start of a relief road round the village. However, latest plans approved by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, overriding local preferences, would see a widened A600 cutting through the middle of the expanded village.

In the background are the two Grade II* airship sheds, built in 1918 and 1926 and a dominant feature of the landscape south of Bedford.
