South Harrow Murals
Based on feedback received from local residents, the mural for South Harrow bridge has now been selected.
Plans are to decorate the bridge and wall with a colourful image, produced by a commissioned artist. The design will display a welcoming message into the town centre, displayed on the bridge, with a mural on the wall below it.
Implementation of the mural is subject to agreement with TfL who own the site and is subject to planning approval.
