Public Space & Regeneration Project: Workington Central Way Underpass
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.
