£2.5m makeover work re-started
THE workmen are back in Fleet Street.
Work is progressing on the first phase of a £2.5million makeover of the shopping area at the bottom end of Torquay town centre.
Contractors returned to the street last month to complete the remaining work associated with the first of a proposed three-phase £2.5million scheme to regenerate the area.
Work on the Torbay Council scheme got under way earlier this year with carriageway works completed in June.

However, remaining work involving paving and drainage was suspended during the peak holiday period.
Granite paving is being laid from the Fleet Walk car park as far as the Bon Marche and the Oggy Oggy Pasty shops on the opposite side.
It should be completed by the end of next month.
A Torbay Council spokesman said: "Works are progressing well and are on schedule. Access is being maintained to all shops during business hours.
"We are working closely with the businesses and the Fleet Walk shopping centre and we thank them for their patience."
