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.

A further £850,000 from the same sources has also been awarded for similar works in Regent Street.
Work is expected to take approximately 11 months.
