THE Council are aiming to reopen New Street, off Westway and Wellington House on Monday September 12.

Demolition work will continue on the old Chicago Rock building, meaning pedestrian safety barriers will still be in place at the top of New Street and Market Street.

A spokesperson from the council said: "The safety of the public is a main priority and the council would like to thank people for their continued patience and cooperation as work continues to restore the town centre to its full and safe operation."
