North Somerset Council’s planned improvement works for Weston town centre have begun.
To prepare for the project's construction, 11 trees in Alexandra Parade will be removed before bird-nesting season starts.
These trees will be replaced by 30 new trees in the project area.
The works will also include a more attractive entrance to the town, a more accessible and simpler hub by bringing scattered town-centre bus stops into one location in Regent Street and enhanced cycling and pedestrian links across the town centre.
The project is being funded by a £4.45million grant from the Department for Transport and Local Growth Fund for public realm, highways and transport improvements to Station Road, Walliscote Road and Alexandra Parade.

Work is expected to take approximately 11 months.
