Weston-super-Mare town centre improvement works near completion

The town centre improvement works are nearing completion with the final enhancements to be finished within weeks.

All resurfacing for Alexandra Parade, Regent Street (East) and Walliscote Road will be completed by Christmas 2021. Resurfacing of Regent Street (West), landscaping and street furniture will be completed January 2022.  

The improvements include:

  • Enhancing cycling and pedestrian links across the town centre
  • Centralising bus stops in one place on Regent Street as a bus hub, to make the use of public transport easier
  • Changes to the road layout of Alexandra Parade and Walliscoste Road to reduce traffic volume
  • Simpler access for pedestrians to the town centre
  • Reducing the impact of lorries in the daytime, with loading access to a new pedestrian zone on Regent Street with loading times outside of peak times

Following the consultation undertaken before the pandemic, the town centre improvement works have been for, and with, the local community.

An attractive space has been created for residents, visitors and employers of Weston and I’m looking forward to seeing the final transformation.
