An alleyway between Exeter Road and Cambridge Road in Ellesmere Port has undergone refurbishment as part of a programme of ongoing improvements in the town centre.
Local traders on Whitby Road had contacted the Council to help improve the well-used alleyway, which was in a poor state of repair and suffered from littering.
The Town Centre Improvement Advisory Body agreed to the allocation of funding to complete the project, which included resurfacing with a new tarmac surfacing and installing gullies and removable bollards at both end of the alley.
The works were delivered by local contractor W. E. Parsons from Victoria Road, Ellesmere Port.
Mayor of Ellesmere, Councillor Brian Jones, said: “Great credit must go to our council workers and contractor Parsons, who have vastly improved the entrance of Exeter Road and Cambridge Road. I hope this will enable the area to maintain its neat and tidy appearance.”
Justin Madders added: “It is good to see this alleyway being improved. It is very close to the high street and well used so anything that can be done to improve the image of the area is to be welcomed.”
