An inclusive, safe and high-quality environment.
Improvements to Wellington Street, New Bridge Square at the heart of the Tri-Centre and the underpass beneath Fleming Way create first impressions of Swindon.
The priority is to transform these vital elements of the centre’s public realm using Council funding, with new surfaces, trees, lighting and street ‘furniture’ provided.
Short-term measures to clean up Fleming Way underpass and tackle rough-sleeping will also be implemented.
A town centre ‘streets strategy’ is also being developed. It will set out details of surfaces materials, lighting, benches, bollards, paving, trees and landscaping, and other issues to a co-ordinate the approach to transforming Swindon’s key streets.
