A SET of six retro-style posters highlighting the history of South Ruislip have been unveiled at South Ruislip railway bridge.

South Ruislip Stories, inspired by old London Underground and Metroland posters, features three colourful prints on each side of the bridge.

On Wednesday (17), the newly-appointed Mayor of Hillingdon, Cllr Shehryar Ahmad-Wallana, unveiled a plaque outlining the work.

The vibrant pieces of work are already turning heads and are helping transform this stretch of busy road.

The project was funded by contributions from developers, with the content of the six prints overseen by former council leader Sir Ray Puddifoot, in conjunction with South Ruislip ward councillors.

The project was created in partnership with Transport for London, which owns this section of the bridge.

The council is hopeful that Network Rail, which owns the other section, will join the project and support more posters.

South Ruislip Stories is a permanent installation and can be found at South Ruislip bridge, near the Tube station.
