Hackney Centre makeover begins

Hackney Central Bridge has been given a new lease of life in the first part of a revamp for the town centre.

The council commissioned artist Martin Richman to create the orange and pink coloured artwork on both the sides of the bridge and a pink and blue lighting installation along the top.

Mr Richman said: “The improvements will help in linking the areas that the bridge seems to currently divide and encourage the sense of Hackney being a lively and vibrant community.”
