Refurbishment works in Peterborough City centre are continuing with a revamp of Cowgate.

Renovation works [artist impression - pictured above right] along the Victorian shopping street are expected to be completed in time for the busy Christmas shopping period.

A spokesperson for Peterborough City Council said: "Enabling works are to commence on the Cowgate enhancement scheme toward the end of next week and the main works will follow on.  

We will attempt to minimise disruption to local traders and are aiming to substantially complete works prior to the main Christmas shopping period."

The works on Cowgate come as a £1.5 million refurbishment of Peterborough's Bridge Street area also gets underway.
