Work has started on the second major phase of a £1.7million project to make Southall town centre more attractive and user friendly for visitors and shoppers. The project is part of Ealing Council’s £15million scheme to regenerate town centres across the borough.
Improvements include new paving, raised surfaces at pedestrian crossing points,redesigning the service road layout outside Lidl on The High Street, new parking bays and refurbishing and rationalising street furniture.
Cabinet member for Regeneration and Transport, Councillor David Millican, said: “Southall is a really vibrant town centre so I’m delighted that we are investing in these improvements to make the area even more attractive to visitors and shoppers”.
The investment is part of the £1.9million set aside by the council to regenerate Southall. The remaining money is being spent on a number of other projects to improve the town centre, like the shop front improvement grant scheme.
