A MASTERPLAN to transform parts of Bewsey and Dallam has been completed.

The completion comes after work on phase two of the council's 'grey to green' project concluded.

The £1.2 million phase two improvements focused on land around Longshaw Street, from Dallam Brook to the junction of Hawley's Lane, and Hawley's Lane, from the junction with Boulting Avenue to the railway bridge.

The work included developing new areas of high-quality public realm and resurfacing to enhance the street scene along the corridor, including the introduction of tree planting.

It has also been boosted by the introduction of traffic calming measures and new pedestrian crossings at key locations, improvements to facilities for cyclists, as well as an extension to the existing car park on the already established community playing fields.

Cllr Hans Mundry, executive board member for highways, transportation and public realm, said: "The vision for Bewsey and Dallam is to transform the area to create an environment we can all be proud of.

"This range of highways and public realm improvements, through the grey to green project, is another major step forward in improving this part of Warrington for the community.

"I'm looking forward to the completion of these works bringing immediate benefits to residents – providing a greener, safer and healthier environment."

Phase one of the project was completed in April last year, with the scheme designed to complement existing and forthcoming developments in the area.

The council appointed Dowhigh Limited to carry out phase two, which started in June this year.

The firm has thanked residents for their co-operation throughout the scheme.
