Work has started on constructing the artwork, which is being placed along Glen Road, Plaistow.

It is the result of a community project involving Barts Health NHS Trust, which runs the hospital, Newham Council and independent resident-led community organisation Plaistow South Big Local.

The project involves around 75 ply boards, each of which are eight feet tall, and display a variety of images depicting aspects of the area’s history, health, education and diversity.

It is set to be formally unveiled at a special ceremony in September.
