Islanders can expect to see changes to Guernsey's Market Street as plans are released to try to make it safer, more attractive and accessible.
The work has been planned by The Committee for the Environment and Infrastructure (E&I) and the Town Centre Partnership.
The asphalt will be replaced with granite paving, which E&I and the Town Centre Partnership hope will make it safer and easier to use for people with disabilities as well as those with push chairs or high heels, but stress that it will not be laid like the High Street.
They say they hope it will also allow businesses to be more creative in their use of the area, which could also include more al fresco opportunities.
It is hoped the work will be completed by the summer.
