Road alterations to make socially-distanced walking and cycling in Swindon more appealing are due to begin next month.
The borough council has announced that it has been awarded £200,000 by the Government to make the necessary changes.
The cash is drawn from Whitehall's Emergency Active Travel Fund.
Locations earmarked for the temporary measures are Station Road, Farnsby Street/Commercial Road, Crombey Street, Faringdon Road between Holbrook Way/Fleet Street and Farnsby Street, Marlborough Road, the Old Town Railway Path and Kingsdown Lane.
The council has also revealed that it is exploring how to use a further £770,000 to improve walking and cycling, subject to Government confirmation of that grant award.
