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).
