A £2 million project to upgrade Hounslow High Street, introducing new street furniture and a performance space, will commence in October.
Hounslow Council said the work would remove existing clutter and introduce new seating, paving and trees to transform the look of the street and provide new facilities for outdoor events.
Borough regeneration lead Councillor Steve Curran said the scheme, paid for from London Mayor Boris Johnson’s Outer London Fund, would turn High Street into a more welcoming and accessible civic space.
“The renewal of Hounslow High Street marks the start of an era of opportunities for businesses, entrepreneurs, residents and visitors to Hounslow,” he said.
“It’s about creating an environment which will boost shops and businesses and make the town centre a place where people want to be and somewhere we are all proud of.
“We will do our best to minimise inconvenience to public businesses and residents, and all premises entered from Bell Square and High Street will remain accessible during construction.”
