IMPROVEMENT work to a Keighley town-centre street is on course for completion early this autumn.

New paving, seating and lighting is being installed in Low Street.

And as part of the scheme, additional planters and signage in Market Street will narrow the carriageway to emphasise the area's pedestrianisation.

Phase one of the project was carried out at the Church Green end of Low Street in 2019.

This latest work, which began in May, will see the rest of the street transformed.

Just over £500,000 was awarded from Keighley Towns Fund for the venture.

Ian Hayfield, chair of the fund's board, says: "We’re delighted with the progress of the work in Low Street. It will be a great improvement to an already vibrant part of the town."

Councillor Alex Ross-Shaw, Bradford Council’s executive member for regeneration, planning and transport, said: "It is great to see the Towns Fund having such a significant impact. We received positive feedback following the first phase of the Low Street scheme, and I'm sure residents, businesses and visitors will really appreciate this final phase when it's completed."

Steve Seymour, manager of the Airedale Shopping Centre, said the project would create a "fresh, bright and attractive appearance" for the area.
