Work for the Frideswide Square redevelopment in Oxford will start on Monday, September 1, Oxfordshire County Council has confirmed.

The first part of the work will be the installation of a mini-roundabout.

Work on changes to Becket Street, Osney Lane and the Worcester Street junction with George Street will start later that month and finish early December.

The redesign of the square – which involves removing the traffic lights and installing three roundabouts – is expected to run until December 2015.
