Harlesden’s Jubilee Clock has returned in a new location, as part of the £4.5million regeneration of Harlesden Town Centre, a joint project between Brent Council, Transport for London and The Harlesden Town Team.
The Jubilee Clock was taken away for refurbishment and has now returned to its new and improved home in the new semi-pedestrianised section of the high street.
Cllr Muhammed Butt, Leader of Brent Council said: “The Jubilee Clock looks fantastic now that it has been refurbished in its original colours.
“Its return represents a significant milestone in the final phase of the regeneration of Harlesden which has been undertaken to create a more attractive town centre and better shopping experience for visitors.”
David Rowe, Head of Borough Projects and Programmes at TfL, said; “It’s great to see that our £3.8m funding has helped transform Harlesden town centre and restore the treasured Jubilee Clock. Wider footways, improved crossings and better facilities for cyclists and bus users will make the centre more inviting, safe and environmentally friendly, which will boost the local economy.”
Leroy Simpson, Chairman of the Harlesden Town Team said: “We love Harlesden and it’s only going to get better following the improvements.”
