Subway artwork

August 31, 2011

Weymouth College art students have been busy creating a unique mural for the new relief road subway at Manor Roundabout.

Two murals, each 2.5m high and 24m long, have been designed and painted by 24 BTEC National Diploma Art & Design students.

Split into two teams of 12, each individual designed their own section of the mural within the theme the team had decided upon.

Engineers working on the relief road project have organised for the artwork to be installed.

Footpath work near Morrison's (large version)

Following the clearance work at Manor Roundabout near Morrison’s, work has started on improving the footpath in the area.

The pavement is being widened to provide good access to the new Manor subway that has been built as part of the relief road. The slope of the footpath down to the subway will also be suitable for mobility scooters.

The new subway is underneath the relief road Manor Roundabout spur and links up with the footpath/cycleway from Manor Roundabout to Lorton Lane and Littlemoor, and with the Two Mile Coppice bridleway.

Manor Subway March 2010 (large version)

As you can see from the photo above, the new Manor Subway is now mostly built.

The subway gives pedestrians a safe route under the relief road near Manor Roundabout to get to schools to the north and the supermarket to the south.

Of course there is still a lot of work to do before the subway will be opened, including putting in the footpath and landscaping the area.
