Two new pieces of urban art will be unveiled at Bristol's main railway station today. The project hopes to provide a better welcome to the city from Temple Meads, and also attract more visitors to the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.
The artworks have been produced by internationally renowned local artists Inkie and Filthy Luker.
Plans for a ten thousand-seat venue next to Temple meads station were ditched five years ago after a developer pulled out. Now the council and local enterpirse partnership are hoping it will form part of a hi-tech communications centre backed with government money.
Taxis will no longer be able to pick up passengers outside Temple Meads station unless they have a licence from the landowners. First Great Western will charge cabbies £375 a year. The train operator already charges drivers £600 to use Bristol Parkway and Bath Spa stations.
