The cycle hoops on Front Street are to be repainted this week. They will not be available for use in the evening while the work takes place.
The improvement is the first of many instigated by the Westfield Ward Committee and follows the publication of the results of a residents survey in which support for refurbishment schemes got a high level of residents support.
The repainting programme will move on over the next few weeks to other parts of the area including the Tedder Road park.
Separately, BT has agreed to repair the damaged telephone kiosks on Front Street. The company says that, subject to consultation, the kiosks which are a target for vandals, may be removed altogether next year.
