Preston Railway Bridge on Fishergate is set to become a showcase welcoming visitors to the city.

First mooted by Preston photographer Bernie Blackburn it appears someone in Lancashire County Council was paying attention.

A temporary art exhibition is being installed on the bridge from Spring to Autumn next year.

A statement from the county council says: “Photographic images representing Lancashire peoples and landmarks will be printed onto vinyl and cut to shape to fit inside the panels which line the inside parapets of the bridge, as these resemble picture frames.

“These will be stuck in place using a heat activated adhesive. At the end of the exhibition period the images will be removed and the bridge returned to its original state.”

The railway bridge is a listed structure so the county council has applied to Preston City Council for planning permission.
