The final stage of repaving in Maidenhead High Street will begin on Monday, January 13.
The last two weeks of the £200,000 regeneration will see granite paving laid outside Boots. It is the last section of the new 125 metre pavement, which sees tegula and granite slabs running from Costa Coffee in the High Street to Queen Street.
The project was scheduled to finish before Christmas, but the Royal Borough says that poor weather and unplanned utility works have lead to a delay, with work also put on hold to avoid congestion during the busy festive shopping period.
The council added that the pavement pattern will be replicated across the town as new developments take place.
Cllr Richard Kellaway, a member of Maidenhead Town Partnership, said: "We’ve already had some very positive comments about the lighter, brighter paving and when all the works are complete, the High Street will be a much more attractive environment for everyone."
