Another 'Welcome To Coventry'

Under the Ring Road (which circles around the City Centre)
What a delight went I got to this spot walking from the Train Station to the City Centre.  Walking under the Ring Road has never been pretty or interesting.  It has always been a dark, messy and wasted space that you are glad to leave behind you.  Because of the Olympic 2012, I imagine, we have a nice welcome sign and ever-changing lights that brighten up a gloomy space.  Well Done, Coventry.



That's brilliant! I hope they keep some of it going post-Olympics (at least those pretty, soft lights) - little things make all the difference!

What a nice surprise, to come across this! It's great!

Folks dress up for the Olympics, don't they? I hope it brings in all the money the UK has anticipated, and more.

Coventry certain has dressed up, Petrea. Wonderful to see. Hard to tell what the financial benefit there will be...hopefully it will be good.

It was a real surprise, Adele, and such a delight...I really, really do hope this kind of development continues.

Lulu - fingers crossed that this sort of change continues. I would hate to publish a photo in the future showing it all back to how it was (cause I will. Now they will have to maintain this...ha ha!).
