“Milton Keynes is such a unique place that its 50-year (and beyond) history deserves to be explored and celebrated. We are looking forward to capturing the voices of today’s communities and looking to the past and sharing our findings in a creative way. The ‘Underpasses – Connecting people, Connecting places’ project will revive, improve and enhance selected underpasses, a key design feature of MK creating more attractive and safer surroundings for residents and visitors.” Myriam Metcalf, OTV Director
