Bauman Lyons to illuminate Leeds' Dark Arches

Bauman Lyons has revealed its £4.5 million proposals to revamp the notorious Dark Arches under Leeds’ railway station.

Work on the project along Neville Street ‘tunnel’ is expected to start in May and aims to transform the dingy, but busy, route from the city centre through to Holbeck into a safer, more welcoming experience for both pedestrians and drivers.

The scheme, which has been developed with Arup Acoustics, Berlin-based artist Hans Peter Kuhn and local graphic designer Andy Edwards, includes widening the footpaths, adding sound-absorbing wall-panels and installing a vandal-proof lighting scheme featuring thousands of LEDs.
