Work to improve the pavement and cycle way from Brighton Pier to West Street has begun and should finish on Friday 30 April, with a two-week break at Easter.
"This is good news for both pedestrians and cyclists. We are getting rid of the dangerous paving slabs and improving the cycle path," says transport spokesperson councillor Simon Battle.
This is the first phase of a long-term plan to resurface the footway and cycle way from the Aquarium as far as the Peace Statue.
Should there be delays due to adverse weather or problems with the construction over the arches, the scheme will close down for the Festival and half term. The area will be left open and made safe for pedestrians, with work resuming if necessary in the five weeks before the start of the peak holiday period in July.
