New look Wentworth Street officially opened

The Mayor of Peterborough, Councillor John Peach, will cut a ribbon to officially open a rejuvenated city centre street on Tuesday 25 August.

Works to re-pave and improve lighting on Wentworth Street began in May and have finished on time and on budget.

The Mayor will be joined by the Mayoress, Janet Martin, shop owners and representatives from Eurovia and Skanska to celebrate the project's completion.

The works cost £130,000 to complete and follow on from the regeneration that has taken place across Peterborough city centre in recent years.

Councillor Peter Hiller, cabinet member for growth, planning, housing and economic development, said: "We've made a real improvement to the city's public realm and this has resulted in the city centre becoming a more attractive place for visitors, residents and new businesses. 

"The Wentworth Street improvements honour a commitment we made to businesses to improve the street scene following the public realm works on Bridge Street. It's important that we listen to traders in the city centre, as we did with the works to improve Cowgate a couple of years ago."
