Series of retro style posters go up in Ruislip

The “South Ruislip Stories” project has unveiled a series of colourful posters on both sides of the South Ruislip bridge.

Inspired by old London Underground and Metroland posters, these prints showcase key landmarks from the local history. On May 17, the new Mayor of Hillingdon, Cllr Shehryar Ahmad-Wallana, along with other officials and project participants, unveiled a commemorative plaque to mark the occasion.

The project, funded by contributions from developers and HS2 amenity funding, was overseen by former council leader Sir Ray Puddifoot MBE in collaboration with South Ruislip ward councillors.

The initiative, created in partnership with Transport for London, aims to transform the busy road and has already received positive feedback from residents and passers-by.

The council hopes that Network Rail, which owns the other section of the bridge, will also support the project in the future. The vibrant posters are a permanent installation near the South Ruislip Tube station
