A four-week programme of works begins next week to transform North End improving Croydon town centre’s main pedestrian thoroughfare.
This will see broken pavements fixed and repairs made to drains and gullies to prevent flooding.
EM Highways has been appointed to carry out the works, which start on Monday, 26 January, and are part of Connected Croydon, a £50m project to transform the town centre through improvements to the high street and infrastructure.
The works are being carefully staged to minimise disruption to businesses and shoppers, with some of it taking place in the evening and noise being kept to a minimum.
Letters have been sent to residents and businesses affected informing them about the works.
“Our high streets are extremely important to the prosperity of the borough and that is why we’re improving them. De-cluttering, cleaning and updating North End will help boost business by making the area look and feel more attractive and a safer place to shop and visit. The programmed work is taking place during evenings so as not to impact on business and we are confident that any disruption will be kept to a minimum.”
Councillor Toni Letts, cabinet member for economic development
