High Street defence barriers complete

Work to create permanent defence barriers on Winchester High Street is now complete.


The barriers combine attractive planters and seating, providing both protection to pedestrians and business, and a place to sit and rest in the city centre.


Cllr Jan Warwick (pictured), Portfolio Holder for Environment and Transport said: “I’m really pleased with these new barriers. They are an attractive and practical addition to the High Street and really improve the pedestrianised area.


“Ultimately, these barriers are a sensible precaution to keep people safe and protect property. They will reassure residents, visitors and business owners in the High Street. We were really pleased to have completed this work swiftly and with minimal disruption before the Christmas light switch on.”
