Fleet Street Regeneration Scheme starts

3rd January 2018

Categories: Latest News

Work is due to start next week on the third and final phase of the highway improvements as part of the regeneration of Fleet Street, Torquay. 

The scheme, which is being funded by Central Government capital funding, as part of the council’s Local Transport Plan, will involve the removal of the remaining areas of original block paving and street furniture over the whole width of the street and laying new granite kerbs, slabs and blocks on the new footway areas, with the running lane being fully reconstructed.  

New drainage and gullies for the footways and carriageway will also be installed along with new street furniture. The works should take six months and are due to be completed by the end of June 2018. 

Torbay Council’s Executive Lead for Community Services, Robert Excell said: “I am pleased to see the third and final phase of the Fleet Street Regeneration scheme getting underway, which will complete this major investment into this part of Torquay Town Centre. The previous two phases have already demonstrated an improved street scene and this theme will now be continued along the full length of Fleet Street.” 

TDA’s Engineering Team is project managing the scheme on behalf of Torbay Council.
