The first phase of the £6.25m greening plan to overhaul the town centre car parks and gateways has been completed.
The work included the transformation of Princess Square car park frontage, decorating, new lighting installation, and improvements to the entrance/exit ramps.
In addition, for the first time in more than 25 years, the south foot bridge linking Princess Square with the High Street car park has been fully refurbished to create a more attractive journey into the shopping area.
The next stage in the programme, will see contractors Knight Harwood turn its attention to High Street car park. These works will include significant refurbishment of the car park frontage, cladding works and the installation of new lighting and decorative wall fins. It is anticipated that this work will be completed in September 2016. Knight Harwood will also complete the refurbishment of the northern link bridge.
Works to The Ring, involving carriageway improvements and a significantly wider footpath and cycleway, will also be carried out in line with this second phase and will be completed in the autumn.
Landscaping works to The Ring, including the introduction of new planting are due to start in autumn 2016.
Simon Russian, development manager, for Legal and General on behalf of Bracknell Regeneration Partnership, said: “These works will ultimately have a great impact on the look and feel of the old parts of the town centre, which will complement the new development.
“When the planting is started later on in the year, we will start to see a much improved and attractive pedestrian and cycle thoroughfare.”
Cllr Marc Brunel-Walker, executive member for economic development and regeneration, said: "The idea behind this work is to create a much more impressive and enjoyable overall town centre and the success of this can already be seen at the Princess Square car park.
"We look forward to the work at High Street car park and on The Ring being completed later this year, seeing another element of the town centre regeneration slotting in to place."
