Croydon town centre has many pedestrian subways which came about as a result of the radial redevelopment of Croydon in the 1960s. Since then, we have seen a number of new crossings replace the use of subways. This has opened up a great opportunity for the council to work alongside Croydon locals and find ways to put them to better use.

The council is following in the footsteps of places like Waterloo, where a tunnel has been transformed into a theatre.

Our students were keen to get involved, and as a result 7 learners studying Art and Design have entered this competition to transform some of these unused subways. The subways chosen for the competition are:

  • Minster: near Croydon Minster, Church Street, Croydon CR0 1RN
  • Old Town Roundabout: near Croydon Fire Station, 90 Old Town, Croydon CR0 1AR
  • Park Lane Gyratory: near Fairfield Halls, Park Lane, London CR9 1DG
  • Addiscombe Road: near No. 1 Croydon, 12–16 Addiscombe Road, Croydon CR0 6SD
  • Lansdowne Road: near Jurys Inn Croydon, Wellesley Road, Croydon CR0 9XY
  • Segas House: near Nestlé Tower, 61 Park Lane, Croydon CR0 1YL

The shortlisted ideas will be presented to the public for feedback on Friday 31 January. This feedback will help the judging panel chose the lucky winner, who will receive a £500 prize for a charity of their choice, with their successful work featuring in a special exhibition.

We wish all of a wonderful students who have entered the best of luck!
