Weston-super-Mare’s Town Square is barely recognisable now, with much of the paving already laid ahead of its opening later this year.
North Somerset Council announced the space’s £2million transformation shortly before Christmas, and work began in earnest at the beginning of January.
The project has involved levelling it out and knocking down part of the wall between the square and Italian Gardens.
The paving has cost around £300,000 in total, and matches the high-quality stones used along Weston’s seafront.
The aim of the project is to make the space more appealing and functional, and the work could involve some road changes in the future.
The square is one of the key features in the council’s ambitions for a regenerated Weston, and work to turn the adjoining Winter Gardens into a law and professional services centre is expected to be completed in September, around the same time as the revamped square.
