Phase one of St Ann’s Road revamp completed
Work on the first phase of improving a town centre street has been completed.
The first of three phases of Harrow Borough Council’s work to revamp St Ann’s Road in the centre of Harrow has now been finished.
Workers have finished laying new paving and added benches and new drainage between Katie’s Statue and Havelock Place, which is the first work on the area for more than 25 years.
Stall holders, including ice cream vans, toy stalls and flower sellers, who make their livelihood in St Ann’s Road have returned after the work.
Terry Butcher, who has run the flower stall for nearly ten years, said: “This work will be a real boost to the town centre and will hopefully make a real difference in terms of attracting shoppers.
“It’s great that the council has listened and is going to try and get a lot of the work finished in time for Christmas shoppers.”
Work on the second phase of the project, between Havelock Place and the entrance to St Ann’s Shopping Centre, is now well underway.
The council hopes the £1.9million revamp will attract more businesses and shoppers to the town centre.
