Street art murals st. Matthews Way Leicester bring the paint

Amazing transformation of Leicester's grim 1960s Burley's fly-over

 The dark and dull concrete of a 1960s Leicester landmark has been transformed by graffiti artists.

The six huge pillars supporting the Burley’s fly-over on the city’s inner ring road have become huge canvases and are now adorned with various different colourful designs - including trees, clouds, flowers and images of local landmarks.

The work has been commissioned by Leicester City Council to try to make the link between the city centre and The Golden Mile more attractive and has been carried out by street art specialists Graffwerk.

Graffwerk repainted the pedestrian crossings on Charles Street near the city council officers and painted the huge £50,000 mural by the new link road that connects Belgrave Gate and Mansfield Street.

The area under the fly-over used to be home to a series of lotus flower sculptures which have now been moved to the newly-created open space on Archdeacon Lane, close to the Charter Street Bridge entrance to Abbey Park

Deputy mayor councillor Adam Clarke said: “On Belgrave Gate, we are creating a much more attractive and direct route from the city centre to the Golden Mile and Abbey Park.

“These attractions are just a 15-minute walk from the Clock Tower and we want to encourage more people to make that short journey by foot or bike.”
