Money from three government grants – the Active Travel Fund, Highway Maintenance Challenge Fund and the Bus Service Improvement Plan – is being used to improve the popular shopping area. According to Brighton & Hove City Council (BHCC), the changes will “make it more pleasant for shoppers, encourage more cycling, wheeling and walking, making it easier to travel through the city and improving air quality.”
BHCC’s Carbon Neutral Fund will also fund parts of the project such as cycling infrastructure and tree planning.
- A resurfaced road;
- Resurfaced and tidier pavements;
- A simpler road layout with a central strip to help with pedestrian crossing;
- More cycle parking, seating and tree planting;
- Improved pedestrian crossings;
- A redesign of the junction with Dyke Road.
Councillor Elaine Hills, Co-Chair of BHCC’s Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee, said: “We are committed to supporting our city’s businesses so it’s great to see that the new year is beginning with a scheme that will really improve the look and feel of this busy part of the city.
