Work is due to begin to improve the shopping district and surrounding area in Walton-on-Thames.

Elmbridge Borough Council said the 14-week project would make the High Street a more attractive destination for visitors.

Plans include improved street lighting, wider footpaths, cycle racks and tourist information signs.

The work is being funded by £350,000 from the borough council and £100,000 from Surrey County Council.
