WORKSHOPS are being held to give the public a chance to take part in a new project.

Artist Elaine Tribley was appointed by Portsmouth City Council to create art pieces for the parapets on Northern Road Bridge.

People can visit a number of sessions and give their views on what they’d like to see on the bridge.

Inspiration for the artwork will be Cosham’s importance as a transport hub.

The artwork will explore the history of the road, the rail networks and the bus interchange.

Elaine said: ‘This is an exciting project and I’m looking forward to getting as many residents involved as possible.

‘There’s a diverse transport history to the town and I’m interested in people’s memories of travelling around Cosham.’

Drop-in workshops are taking place today, from 11am to 2pm, at 1000 Lakeside, North Harbour; at Cosham Library, on September 17 and 28 between 11am and 1pm; and on September 27 at Cosham Community Centre, from 10am till 1pm.
