Work has started on a £75 million project to transform the centre of the town.

Highways officers began construction work to reroute traffic outside the civic centre at the beginning of the week as part of a scheme which will incorporate development on the railway station, creation of a bus station and alterations to the one-way system.

Plans include creating a sensory garden as part of phase one of the project and construction of the bus interchange and car park on Barrack Row. The final phase will see Rathmore Road car park closed and the street replaced with a two way road, while the land is used for housing. Council leader Mike Snelling said: “It’s an exciting project which will change traffic flows and reunite the railway station with the town.”
