McDonalds re-open Drive Thrus in nearby Dunstable and Luton today

McDonalds have announced they are re-opening their Drive Thru lanes in nearby Dunstable and Luton.

39 Drive Thru's in South East England are re-opening today as the chain continues to test plans for re-opening nationally.

The sites closest to Milton Keynes with an open Drive Thru are Dunstable Luton Road, Luton Retail Park Gipsy Lane, Luton Leagrave and Luton Chaul End Lane.

McDonalds franchisee in Milton Keynes, Ken Tomkins, told MKFM earlier this month that he hopes to open sites in our city soon - and the chain announced today that all Drive Thru's across the UK should re-open by early June.

Announcing today's re-opening of more sites, McDonalds said: "Our teams are still adjusting to the new procedures we've introduced to enable safe working and social distancing, so things might take a little longer."

"We expect high demand across all locations. We are working closely with local authorities and we may determine that it is necessary to close our Drive-Thru lanes if queues cause disruption or put our employees or customers at risk."
