A stunning new fly-through shows how Swansea’s new-look, family-friendly Wind Street will look once its £3m upgrade is finished.

Wind Street is the city’s best-known street and is a thriving base for daytime and nightlife businesses and communities.

It’s anticipated substantial completion of the £3m upgrade will be done by the end of November. When it’s finished it will be even more attractive, featuring new flower beds, street furniture and other additions to add colour and vitality.

It’ll also link to the soon-to-be upgraded Castle Square Gardens which will also boast more trees and more greenery to offer another family-friendly destination with performance spaces and other attractions.

The new-look Wind Street aims to give a lift to the café quarter of the city centre in the build-up to the nearby Swansea Arena preparing to welcome many thousands of visitors every week from early 2022.

The project has been welcomed by Wind Street businesses because it will encourage more visitors during the day, thanks to more spaces for outdoor dining that’s become such a familiar feature of hospitality venues since they opened after the pandemic. 

Cllr Rob Stewart, Leader of Swansea Council, said: “It won’t be long now until the Wind Street upgrade is completed. Businesses I’ve spoken to are delighted with the work that’s being done.

“They need a boost after what they’ve gone through over the last 18 months. On top of all the other support they’ve had from the council, the improvements will be great news for the long-term too.”

He added: “As well as the changes to Wind Street itself we’re also looking at making lanes and alleys connecting to Wind Street cleaner and safer spaces and there are plans in hand for rainbow street art and other cultural additions in the coming months.”

    It is about time this Councilor Rob Stewart got his head out of the clouds and start doing something useful for the people of Swansea another total waste of money and going to put more greenery in Castle Gardens. There was plenty of greenery there before the council turned it into a concrete mess that it it now. Probably start digging up the Kingsway next can see the problems starting there already and not even Christmas yet
