Works are under way to improve a key Middlesbrough thoroughfare.
The upgrades to part of the pedestrianised section of Linthorpe Road are the latest phase of major regeneration taking place across the city centre.
The improvements – between Corporation Road and Wilson Street – are designed to enhance one of Middlesbrough’s busiest shopping areas.
Works include removal of old street furniture, deep cleaning of pavements and the installation of new street lighting.
Some on-street vending units have already moved to new locations, and the green clock tower and canopy outside Marks and Spencer will be removed.
Councillor Lewis Young, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive member for Economic Development and Infrastructure, said: “A successful city centre relies on a vibrant, modern and accessible retail experience, and that’s a key priority for Middlesbrough.
“Linthorpe Road North is a vital link between the Rail Station and retail quarter, and we are constantly looking at ways to attract and retain both businesses and visitors.
“These improvement works will make a real difference to this strategically important area.”
The works are due to be completed by the end of March.
