No evidence is put forward as to the reliability or accuracy of the Central Beds and Luton Transport Model. It is assumed that the results are at best indicative. In particular it is very unlikely to account for dual lane entry roundabouts on single carriageway highways (eg the A507), or the effect of uncontrolled on street parking on the capacity of urban roads.

The Stage 1A Transport Modelling includes the land at Caddington Brickfields as a location for growth as part of the assessment. The findings as discussed at Section 8 of the attached representations produced by JLL but broadly the councils study concludes that development at Caddington Brickfields can be accommodated within the capacity of existing highways. The study notes that the more significant impacts in the vicinity are attributable to the "Land West of Luton" proposals.

The Stage 1A report includes a possible routing for the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway, which has not yet
been confirmed. There is the potential that the routing could have implications for the Aspley Guise Growth
Location and therefore the Council should apply a level of caution in defining, albeit indicatively a route within
the evidence base, which could influence certain strategic decisions when there remains to be a level of
uncertainty. Furthermore, the alignment of the Expressway could affect how Junction 13 of the M1 operates,
including significant improvements, see attachment
