Let ξ(k,n) be the local time of a simple symmetric random walk on the line. We give a strong approximation of the centered local time process ξ(k,n)-ξ(0,n) in terms of a Brownian sheet and an independent Wiener process (Brownian motion), time changed by an independent Brownian local time. Some related results and consequences are also established.
