One of the borough's roads will be transformed into a stylish and contemporary shopping area with a �500,000 revamp to boost the area's businesses.

Circus Road, in St John's Wood will get energy-efficient street lights to replace the current lampposts, and new paving stones covered in 'Magic Cote' which helps protect the pavement from chewing gum and stains.

As part of the upgrade, new wooden seats and flower beds will be placed next to the junction with Wellington Street, allowing tired shoppers to rest their legs and pause to soak up the atmosphere of this village-style London high street.
