Tram overpass mural to start

Hopefully, this will be the last graffiti on the structure!
The Forestville/ Goodwood Tram Overpass murals will start next week ( weather dependent).

The artists will now prep the walls one by one, mural by mural starting at Forestville Reserve, round to Aroha Terrace, and then to Railway Terrace North and then South.

All equipment, installation and OHS issues are being handled by DPTI. A notice has been placed on the 2 noticeboards in Forestville Reserve. The residents received a letter about this project back in May.

The artists will be working every day, weather dependant during the week and perhaps some weekends. They will be carrying ID from DPTI in case they are approached by the public. It is anticipated that the project will take 4-6 weeks to complete.

Using the themes of the local physical environment, flora, fauna, community, motion and active travel, I know we all will enjoy seeing these walls evolve into bright and vibrant canvases after many years of continual graffiti in the area. Timed with the anticipated landscaping of the Forestville Reserve nearby, this area is now getting a serious make-over and will be transformed into one of the jewels of our open space.
