Speedy work gives smart new look to Market Place in Redditch

Correspondent 2nd Jun, 2021

WORKS on improving the paving on Market Place in Redditch have been completed six weeks ahead of schedule.

The area is the latest to see improvements, as part of the County Council’s town centre improvement programme.

The street now links in with previous improvements that took place on Alcester Street and Church Green East.

The county’s cabinet member for highways and transport, Councillor Alan Amos, said: “These works have continued at pace and it’s great that the scheme is now complete.

“The fully refreshed paving smartens up the area, making it more attractive for businesses, residents and visitors, which is very important during these difficult times.

“This is yet another example of the council’s commitment to making improvements to our city and town centres, across the county.”

The scheme included a full refresh of the paving from the junction of Evesham Walk down Market Place and into Mercian Square and included an upgrade of street lighting, refreshing street furniture and drainage improvements on Evesham Walk. The trees will be planted in the autumn.

The improvements took place, working closely with Redditch Borough Council.

These improvements are part of the wider Town Centre Improvement Programme; a programme that has seen successful works carried out in recent years including improvements to Pump Street and The Shambles in Worcester, High Street in Stourport, Worcester Street in Kidderminster and works are currently ongoing on Port Street in Evesham.
