New art work produced by college students promises to brighten the wait at bus stops for many passengers.
Abingdon & Witney College announced it would be transforming 16 bus shelters in Witney, with Newland bus shelter being the first to be unveiled last week.
The project aims to not just turn a piece of street furniture into an eye-catching asset, but also discourage vandalism, while also offering businesses the opportunity to sponsor the project and display their logo.
Making their mark on the first bus shelter were the team at Krayma, an IT support business.
Mike Dove from Krayma Technical Solutions said: “Witney’s a beautiful town and one we’re all proud to live in, but the bus stops around town were looking a little tired.
To come up with this fantastic concept, rather than just give them a lick of paint is a superb idea.”
Vinyl print company Leach Print installed the artwork at the busy stop under the gaze of passers-by and passengers.
Witney’s Mayor, Cllr Chris Woodward, said: “This magnificent work will hopefully be the inspiration for others to showcase their talent and bring our bus shelters back to life, each with a unique identity.”
The college joined forces with Witney Town Council to bring the project to fruition.
