On Tuesday 29th April I travelled up to Hipperholme, Halifax to meet with Dave Lowe of Hardscape who is delivering a major feature of the Station Quarter North Project. – ‘Canal Shore’ is a 174m long linear artwork in black basalt which forms the kerb and pavement edge along Blechynden Terrace. The work is inset with text in contrasting light grey granite.
Hardscape are working with their sub contractor, Scribble Stone who specialise in water jet cutting.
This work is an element of a much larger public realm project around Central Station which I am working on in collaboration with Balfour Beatty Living Places, CH2M Hill, Southampton City Council and Lighting Consultants Michael Grubb Studio. This project is in turn part of a wider a transport interchange programme reviewing pedestrian and traffic flow around the Station principally on an East to West axis.
