CANNOCK SUBWAY SUCCESS!

Last Friday our sales manager, Mark Wood, attended the official opening of the transformed underpass at Beecroft Road in Cannock. Following months of development the underpass has been given a new lease of life with a digitally printed tile mural, stretching both sides of it’s entire 29 metre length!

The project named, ‘Changing Places,’ was part the local Town Centre Improvements Scheme, the Council’s Communications team and the Community Wellbeing Arts. A survey was taken by over 200 residents and shoppers to find out what they wanted to see in the underpass, 40% of whom preferred a ‘natural and fresh’ design option including greens and earthy colours, which became the theme for the artwork.

The finished mural is very impressive and has rejuvenated a previously uninspiring area. The mural depicts landmarks and buildings from around Cannock that many of local people will recognise. Over 60% of the 200 people asked use the subway at least once a week so it will be a more attractive walk the public!
