New look unveiled

on Fri Mar 15 2019, 14:53
for Wigan's Market Place



A regeneration project in the heart of Wigan town centre will be almost complete this weekend, just in time for Run Wigan Festival. The project, delivered by Wigan Council’s contractor nmcn, has seen a host of improvements carried out on Market Place. The work includes new benches, recycling bins, planters, trees and flowers, and cycle parking facilities. The walled area has been lowered and the floor was repaved. A history board is also being installed to give shoppers an insight into the background of the area. The council says the improvements are in keeping with the style of Wallgate and have been developed to compliment major town centre events, including Run Wigan Festival, Wigan 10k and Wigan Pride.

I'm not sure I like the new look. It may grow on me. It will maybe look different with some plants to give it colour.

They laid new paving stones, then along came some blokes who cut a trench in them and filled it in with tarmac! Bonkers!

I know it’s so they’re not a fixed feature, but those benches don’t look robust or supportive enough for everyone, whereas the original ones in the area were.

There’s new tarmac in front of Brocol House, which I noticed as it’s very bumpy & poorly laid.
