A SCHEME to refurbish streets in Barnsley town centre will start on June 30.

Eldon Street, Regent Street South, Hanson Street, Royal Street, Regent Street, Eastgate, Market Hill and Church Street's footpath will all benefit thanks to a significant funding contribution from the European Regional Development Fund programme.

It includes paving in natural Yorkstone and granite, new street lighting and new street furniture. Roads will also be resurfaced with improved crossing facilities provided.

The works, which will last approximately 11 months, continues the reinvigoration of Barnsley town centre.

Access to properties and businesses adjacent to the works will be maintained throughout the duration, although access may be restricted at times as work is carried out across business frontages.
