One of the busiest roads into Bristol is to have a facelift.

The Liberal Democrat-controlled council says it wants to replace the pavements on the A38 on Stokes Croft between City Road and the Bear Pit roundabout.

A spokesman said it would also remove and relocate street signs to "declutter" the area.

He added the footpath outside the Full Moon public house would be widened and the junction with Moon Street made more pedestrian and cyclist-friendly.

The city council also wants to put in new bins and cycle stands as part of the improvements.

Local trader Jane Brewerton, who works in a picture framing and printing business, said she hoped the new pavement would make a "big difference" to the area.

"I am very pleased that all the energy and hard work that has taken place over the last year or two has come together.

"The new pavement construction from City Road down to The Full Moon will hopefully make a big difference to this end of Stokes Croft and I look forward to seeing this part of Stokes Croft blossoming," Ms Brewerton added.
