Two new planters will be installed at the former entrance to Crosspool Tavern on Manchester Road.
The location will allow for continued pedestrian access to the pelican crossing, the pub entrance and the pavement in front of the pub.
The tubs will be delivered with soil and planting already prepared and Crosspool Forum will take on their future maintenance. An exact date for their arrival has not yet been confirmed.
This former entrance to the Tavern’s car park was earmarked for landscaping as part of the S10 corridor scheme in 2005, although this has not yet happened. The two new floral tubs are expected to make access to the pelican crossing safer.
