Elephant sculpture to become iconic landmark

Approach Works are proud to be partnering with DPQ and Colchester Borough Council to deliver this exciting Elephant sculpture.
The sculpture is part of the “Fixing the Link” initiative aimed at encouraging people to walk from the station to the town centre – the elephant is part of a well-known Colchester legend. A large bronze elephant sculpture will be installed on the Albert Roundabout outside the town’s main railway station to highlight the start of the newly-waymarked route to the town centre.

The design is inspired by tales of Emperor Claudius’s dramatic arrival into Colchester with a herd of elephants to celebrate the victory of the Roman invasion in 43 AD, and will help create a positive first impression for people coming to Colchester by rail.
