The next phase of a £2.78million project to clean up Thornton Heath streets will begin on Monday.

Works will be carried out by the roundabout on Whitehorse Lane at the junction with High Street and Whitehorse Road and will include the removal of old street furniture and the addition of new paving and kerbs. New trees will also be planted and new public seating installed.

Councillor Alison Butler said: “Improving the look and feel of Thornton Heath has been a high priority for residents and the council alike.

"I am pleased the first stage of public realm works is coming to an end and the improvements around the Whitehorse Lane roundabout can now begin.

“The input from the local community will ensure that these works will further enhance Thornton Heath, making it an attractive place for residents and visitors alike and I look forward to seeing the end result.”
