An old clock which once stood in a prominent position in Weston-super-Mare could be returned to the town centre.

The green bus station clock, which dates from 1928, moved to the Beach Lawns in 1991 and went into storage in 2009 following the seafont revamp.

However, it could be put on display again, this time in Alexandra Parade when work to change the roads has been completed.

North Somerset Council’s executive member for transport, Elfan Ap Rees, has confirmed moving the clock to Alexandra Parade is being discussed.

The council has received £4.5million for a transport enhancement scheme, which includes work to Station Road and making Alexandra Parade more bus-friendly.

After a consultation, a revamp to Station Road is due to take place from January to June 2019.

Work in Alexandra Parade is scheduled for autumn 2019, with completion expected by March 2020.
