Transport for NSW has collaborated with local Sydney artists to give a new look to traffic signal boxes across several suburbs in western Sydney.
Transport for NSW Director of Sydney Maintenance, David Fishburn said in Parramatta, Liverpool, Blacktown, Penrith and Albury newly designed artwork has been created and printed onto vinyl wraps to spruce up the traffic signal boxes at key intersections and beautify the area.
“In partnership with local councils, we have successfully installed 150 wraps on traffic signal boxes across western Sydney,” Mr Fishburn said.
“It was a team effort from all involved and Transport for NSW is proud to have played an integral part in the initiative’s success.
“The wraps have been designed to celebrate the unique characteristics of each local area for community members and commuters to admire.”
Mr Fishburn said historical photographs, aboriginal art and aerial land shots are some of the designs featured on these wraps.
“The project serves a dual purpose; it is a unique platform for local artists to display their art and aims to reduce the level of graffiti at these recurring vandalised intersections. “
