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.

The improvements include:

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
