Portobello Bridge had long been an eyesore blighted by water damage‚ nesting pigeons‚ graffiti tagging and flyposting. The dilapidated and neglected site formed a barrier to the Northern part of Portobello Road.
Following negotiations with London Underground and Metronet engineers, Urban Eye cleaned and repainted the bridge structure, installed specially designed artwork on the parapets and retaining walls under the bridge, and installed anti-pigeon measures and new lighting. The result helped make the area feel noticeably brighter and safer. The project was funded by the Neighbourhood Renewal Fund.
