Road improvements and a cycle route joining Weston to other North Somerset towns looks likely go ahead after a £442,000 grant was approved.
North Somerset Council has received the money through the Local Growth Fund as part of the regeneration of Weston.
The authority says injecting fresh life in the town is its main priority for the next decade.
This latest grant will be used to improve Alfred Street’s junction with Locking Road and Alexandra Parade.
The aim is to reduce traffic in the town centre and to make the area more attractive to pedestrians.
The council also plans to create cycle routes connecting Weston to Clevedon, Portishead and Brean, for commuters and tourists to use.
Some of this project is already underway, and the latest funding will connect Uphill to Brean.
Cllr Elfan Ap Rees, executive member with responsibilty for economic development, will first have to agree to the proposals.
