The latest phase of public realm work in Altrincham town centre is progressing well, Trafford Council has announced.
The works are part of a large scale package of improvements to make the town centre an even better place to work, live and visit.
The latest works includes:
- Parts of George Street receiving planters, seating on central spaces and high quality paving to the shopfronts to include sustainable drainage and trees.
- The footpaths on Regent Road continuing to be replaced before construction starts on the segregated cycle ways and ‘rain gardens’ which will transform the look and feel of the road.
The upgrades have been put on hold for the Christmas period and will re-commence in early January through to spring.
The Market Street work is due to commence in January 2023 with a number of improvements to create better pedestrian and cycling provision. The existing one way system on Market Street will remain in place until late February 2023 when the direction of traffic will be reversed to help reduce the amount of vehicles that cut through the town centre.
Cllr Liz Patel, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Economy and Regeneration, said: “These large scale public realm improvement works will continue the transformation of Altrincham to make the town an even better destination in which to live, work and shop. We are trying to minimise disruption as much as possible to create active travel facilities for the benefit of residents, businesses and visitors.”
All the public realm improvements in Altrincham are expected to be completed in June 2023.
