A £7m project is underway to give some of Blackpool’s key roads a facelift to make streets more welcoming and shops more vibrant. The project began in January 2017 with upgrade works to Church Street.
The works include resurfacing the roads, improving pavements and crossings, adding more benches, bins and cycle parking.
The second stage of the Quality Corridors project will involve working with local businesses to help them improve their shop fronts, making both their businesses and the town centre look more appealing. The grant scheme will allow businesses in certain areas to bid for money to do the work, with more information on the bidding process to be revealed later in the year.
Blackpool Council has secured a £6.6m grant from the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership’s Growth Deal and a further £740,000 is being contributed by the council.
Work to upgrade Dickson Road is now underway.
