STUDENTS from York College have designed and built a sculpture for one of the city's new Park&Ride sites.

The college's construction division has worked alongside main contractor Balfour Beatty to make the structure, a medieval stone window in a brick surround, for the nearby Askham Bar Park&Ride.

It represents the heritage of the city as the site is situated on the original Roman road in to York.

Following a visit to the college, Balfour Beatty project manager, Rob Lockwood was so impressed by the students work that he wanted to incorporate some of their work in the scheme.

Kevin Clancy, the college's head of construction said: “This complex project involved both stonemasonry and brickwork students.

"The skills demonstrated in the piece show an excellent quality of work produced by our construction students. It is fitting that with just a glance over the entrance piece, York College frames the whole setting and provides an excellent backdrop.”
