Improvements are to be made to Peascod Street in Windsor to enhance the appearance and accessibility of the street.
The project, suggested by the Windsor and Eton Town Partnership and the Windsor District Chamber of Commerce, is due to begin on Monday, January 19.
It involves raising the road level on Peascod Street between Oxford Road East and William Street so it is the same level as the pavement, and introducing a pedestrian friendly surface.
Cllr Eileen Quick, cabinet member for Windsor, said: "This work will greatly improve the southern end of Peascod Street, making it more attractive to shoppers and encouraging visitors to local shops and businesses.
"It will also make access easier for our disabled residents and visitors."
The work will also involve removing and, in some cases, relocating street furniture, particularly around the William Street junction, to improve the views along the street and bring increased footfall into the southern end of Peascod Street towards St Leonard's Road.
Work is expected to take 16 weeks, with the street closed to vehicles during this period but a temporary loading bay will be created in William Street and be accessed at the northern end.
