The passage forms part of the journey pedestrians take to connect them to the Designer Outlet.
The underpass is used by many Ashford residents, and the improvements will make it a much safer, more attractive way to connect key areas of the town.
The project is part of a series of murals which will create an attractive underpass that improves passenger experience and showcases Ashford as a destination.
Network Rail commissioned artist, Lionel Stanhope, will paint a series of murals on the underpass walls and entrance, in his signature style. The first, due to be completed at end of March, is a vintage style railway sign mural.
Pupils from The North School have also been invited to design a mural for a section of the walls. A competition within the school will select a design that celebrates Ashford’s rich history and Lionel Stanhope will then recreate that design as a final mural on the walls of the underpass.
Ashford is home to a variety of quality retail experiences. Discover the town centre's independent shops and cafes, as well as Ashford Outlet's designer labels.
