Work on the first two phases of the city centre public realm improvement programme in the Victoria Street and Civic Halls areas are well underway and we are now preparing to move to the next phase.

During the pandemic we made changes to our high streets to help with social distancing measures and to keep everyone safe. This included widening the footways by reducing traffic movement to one way and introducing a new segregated cycle route to encourage people to cycle more. The next phase of the improvement works will see these temporary measures made permanent whilst enhancing the general look and feel of the area with improved environment including quality paving, planting and new street furniture.
