A5130 road

The A5130 is a road in the United Kingdom. It starts on a roundabout with the A509 near Junction 14 of the M1 motorway and proceeds south round the eastern edge of the original Milton Keynes designated area. After crossing the A421 the 5130 continues past the village of Wavendon. It then crosses the Bedford-Bletchley railway by means of a level crossing and passes through Woburn Sands. It terminates a short distance to the south upon meeting the A4012 just inside the village of Woburn.

The road is de facto a part of the Milton Keynes Grid Road System, an unofficial V12, being absorbed as Broughton expands (see next).


With the eastern expansion of Milton Keynes now under construction, Milton Keynes Partnership are downgrading the road to what it calls "a High Street". This plan is controversial and is opposed locally, by local parish councils, residents and campaign group Urban Eden, but the Partnership says that it has completed due process and consultations and now has the authority to impose it. It is not yet clear whether or not this stretch will retain the A5130 number or if it will be deleted. A 40 mph (64 km/h) speed limit has been put in place along the stretch in question, and development has been built right up to the road's edge. MKP's eventual plan is to reduce the speed limit further to 30 mph (48 km/h).
