Town Centre Streets Set For Makeover

Thursday March 27 2014

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

A HOST of streets in the town centre will receive a makeover.

Work on Eastgate, Eldon Street, Hanson Street, Market Hill, Regent Street, Regent Street South, Royal Street and Church Street's footpath will start in June.

Yorkstone and granite will be used, new street lighting and new street furniture will be installed. Roads will also be resurfaced with improved crossing facilities provided.

A council spokesman said: "This work continues the invigoration of the town centre. Making these areas even more inviting will only increase the town centre's appeal.”

The work will be funded by the European Regional Development Fund and will last for approximately 11 months.

Any chance we can 'spend' money elsewhere to the Town Centre, I am not saying it doesn't need it but so does the rest of the Town....

Barnsley MBC can't see any further than the town centre.?? The rest of the borough is falling to bits because of Labour's obsession with this crazy policy.!!

The town centre has had enough spent on it and wasted on it.

The roads are full of potholes, service have been cut and the library is to close. When will the people of Barnsley vote in more competent local goverment?

Why is the money being spent on pavements instead of roads or social care or policing etcetc?
