The project is intended to boost trade and investment in the town
A multi-million pound facelift of a Cumbrian town centre has begun.
The £4.3m revamp of Barrow-in-Furness will include new street furniture, lighting, and improved road drainage.
The first phase of work is being carried out in Dalton Road, and the entire project is due to be completed by September 2010.
It is being funded mainly by the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) with contributions from the county and borough councils.
The project is intended to boost trade and investment in the town centre.
Dalton Road, Portland Walk, Cavendish Street, Scott Street, Dalkeith Street and William Street will all see environmental and landscape improvements.
