Roadworks costing £700,000 will start in Weston next week, with hopes of making the town centre safer for pedestrians.
Work will begin at South Parade and Knightstone Road tomorrow (Monday).
The project, led by North Somerset Council after a cash injection from the Government’s Local Growth Fund, will create a safer crossing from Weston College to the town centre.
The width of pavements will also be increased.
A council spokesman said: “Drivers will still be able to access the roads, although there will be times when there are lane closures, traffic lights and diversions.
“It is likely that most of the resurfacing of the road will be during twilight and night hours.
“The improvement works, which will take approximately four months, will offer drivers better visibility, give more space for pedestrians and cyclists and make it a safer place for residents and visitors.”
