Leeds Train Station – Bishopgate Steps

Revamp of a busy stairwell


A public art project, commissioned by Leeds City Council.

The stairwell from Bishopgate Street to Leeds Train Station was in need of a facelift. The brief – revitalise the space making it more welcoming.

To minimise disruption to travellers, the steps remained open during the day, therefore all work had to be carried out during the night.

After cleaning, stabilising and undercoating the walls, the design was sprayed on. The ceiling got a fresh white revamp, and the handrails painted grey.

Completed Aug 2018.

Big thanks to the team at Leeds City Council (Rebecca, Mark and Highways Lee) and all the Leeds Train Station night staff that made this job a joy.
