Residents wanting to share in the excitement of the Torch Relay will get their first glimpse of Matt and the Flame at around 07.55 on 9 July. Hot fo
ot from overnight celebrations in Luton, the Torch Relay will enter Dunstable on Luton Road, making its way down High Street North before being taken by convoy to its next stop in Milton Keynes.

Leader of Central Bedfordshire Council, Cllr James Jamieson says, "With just two months to go until the Olympic Flame arrives in the UK, today's announcement will help to ignite local interest in the Dunstable leg of the Torch Relay. We are looking forward to welcoming the Torch and our inspirational Torchbearer, Matt, to Dunstable and I hope that residents and members of the surrounding communities will line the streets to enjoy the spectacle and join in what will be a historic occasion.

"Council preparations for welcoming the Olympic Flame are well underway and we will be making some further announcements about arrangements, including road closure information, in the coming weeks.”
