The arches on Spa Road (the ones with the iron columns) are next in line for a facelift, they're grade II listed so the restoration should see better lighting and repairs to the period features - IIRC this is being funded by Cleaner Greener Safer and Railway Heritage funding. HTH!

I love these little details, they just give you something to catch your eye as you're walking about

I like the lit up arches along Gt Suffolk Street. Also like the huge numbers in LEDs in some of them (like on Union Street) - which I presume are official railway arch numbers of some sort.

On a related note I'm hoping that the tenants for the newer arch office conversions in Gt Suffolk Street are as arty as the guys in the one on the corner opposite Chasbikes & the green coffee hut - they change their window display quite frequently and it is often interesting and/or quirky.

it makes you feel ignorant when you read this, and then think what lights?? i walk under most of these arches on pretty much a daily bases... My eyes have now been opened, quite literally.

I understand that it is going to be lit - eventually. Yes, I thought the other lights were better than the new ones. It still has an 'unfinished' look to it, after all this time.
