Roundabout gets new look

THE redesign of a roundabout at an entrance to Henley has been completed.

THE redesign of a roundabout at an entrance to Henley has been completed.

A wire sculpture of a body exiting water has gone into the middle of the roundabout, sponsored by The Henley Standard, on Reading Road near Tesco.

It was designed by Rachel Ducker, from Oxford, and is made of different types of metal wires designed to change colour as the sculpture ages.

She said: "It was quite a daunting task and a bit scary at first but I am thrilled with how it looks. I would drive past and see the space and see how prominent an entrance it is.

"I am really happy it is the first thing people will see when they come to Henley."

The design for the roundabout was done by Paul Terroni, from Abingdon, whose concept was Henley as a "gateway to a healthy lifestyle" and with beds in Olympic-style interlocking rings.

He said: "I am so pleased with the final results. It looks amazing.

"Now I can't wait for the plants to grow so it looks like the sculture is splasing out of the water."

An official unveiling with sponsors will take place in early May.
