MORE town centre improvements have got underway in Barnsley.

For the next seven weeks that work will include upgrading and renewing traffic lights, installing new ducting and new street lights on Church Street, Shambles Street and parts of Market Hill.

The work will also mean Church Street being closed between Eastgate and Sadler Gate on October 13 and Regent Street closed at its junction with Church Street on October 20.

The second phase of the work will start in January next year and will include re-paving and re-kerbing streets in the same material as the recently completed Barnsley Pals Centenary Square.

Roads will also be resurfaced and there will be new seats and litter bins.
