Public Space & Regeneration Project: Workington

Workington Central Way Underpass Regeneration Project .

Collaborating together the project aimed to create a brighter, friendly space linking both vehicle and pedestrian routes to the Leisure Centre on Griffin Street to the town centre.

Keeping the existing tunnel structure but new lighting, road system, pavements and mural art will be introduced to provide an improved and safer experience for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists.
Public engagement and feedback via an exhibition was held at the Workington Leisure Centre.


Mural artworks running throughout the space incorporate illustrated images and graphic letters each relating to a part of the town's story linking Workington's unique current culture and its rich industrial history.

A quote from us: “We love designing murals and using design to improve public spaces. It has been really exciting to learn more about Workington’s story. We want to make the underpass a bright modern space which celebrates the town’s rich history, community and culture from the past and present.”
