A major street in Bury St Edmunds will reopen to buses and taxis after the completion of a major enhancement scheme.

St Andrew's Street South will be open again from Thursday and buses will be stopping again in the street. The area has been repaved and new street furniture installed as part of an overall project to enhance the town centre and improve the links between the historic core and the new development arc shopping development on the old cattle market.

Warm white street lighting, which is more energy efficient and safer than the current lighting, will be installed early in the New Year.

Terry Clements, St Edmundsbury Borough Council's portfolio holder for transport and planning at the council, said: “The same high quality materials have been used on both this scheme and in Kings Road, which has helped bring a clean, consistent look to the streets surrounding the new development. This is another vital milestone in what is a hugely important project for the town and we look forward to its completion.”

As part of the project, the 20mph speed restriction has been extended and access to the street continues to be restricted to buses, taxis and permit holders.
