As planned works to Keynsham High Street reach the final phase, West of England Metro Mayor Dan Norris will help plant some shrubs at the Bath Hill junction. Mr Norris said it was a privilege to mark this important moment and play a part in creating a green legacy for future generations.
The improvements to the high street are funded via a £1.5 million investment by the West of England Combined Authority, which Mr Norris leads. The scheme will see permanent improvements to the area, including footpath widening and resurfacing, better signage and cycling and bus stop facilities. There will also be new street furniture and streetlights, as well as the landscaping area.
Dan Norris, West of England Metro Mayor, said: “our high streets are the very heart soul of our community, serving as an illustration of the pride people have in the local area. I know the closure of Keynsham High Street has been immensely frustrating for residents, but I am delighted we are now in the final stretch. I know local people will enjoy what will be a vibrant high street, one that is fit for the future that while remaining crucial to the community”.
