Parts of Moor Street in Ormskirk are getting a new look to help make it an even more attractive gateway into the town.
The raised dais, stone planters and some associated street furniture between the junctions with Moorgate and Railway Road are being removed. These works will mean there is more room to re-arrange market stalls in a more attractive way and provide more stalls if they are required.
Work has now begun and the scheme is being carried out by West Lancashire Borough Council.
The popular Ormskirk Market will continue to operate as normal during the project, which is expected to last until October 2017.
Councillor John Hodson, portfolio holder for planning, said: “I am really pleased this work has started as it will help make this important gateway to Ormskirk even more attractive, particularly to people who are arriving in town by public transport.”
In 2015 a major project was completed by Lancashire County Council in partnership with the borough council to make the pedestrianised part of Moor Street more attractive. These latest activities will help progress the Council’s ongoing commitment to implementing the Ormskirk Town Centre Strategy and its aims to make Ormskirk an even more vibrant and successful town centre.
