Merry Street Underpass
This is one of four underpasses which connect the town centre shops with the suburbs. Located at the north end of the shopping centre, it passes under the A721 Menteith Street Street. Both sides of the underpass have ramps leading up to street level.

The underpass is adorned by artworks on both sides which are glazed into the ceramic tiles by means of a special technique. This work was carried out by designer Bruce Macaulay of 6247 Public Art LinkExternal link , the same group which produced the ceramic tile mural at the Oak Mall in Greenock LinkExternal link .

The photographic artworks show world landmarks with tenuous links to Motherwell (such as distance or latitude), presumably intended not to be taken too seriously.
