 A vibrant 50-metre mural inspired by childrens’ artwork has been opened beneath Monash Freeway.
The enormous design was chosen from winning entries by five Berwick Lodge Primary School students.
It spans below the Sweeney Drive bridge that has been widened for extra inbound and outbound Monash Freeway lanes.
The artwork strikes on themes such as community, connection, transport and progress – as well as the school’s emblem, the helmeted honeyeater.
It brightens the otherwise grey concrete mass, and is hoped to deter graffiti-taggers.
Berwick Lodge principal Henry Gossek said the project was a wonderful initiative for the school’s talented, budding artists.
“This project has provided our students with a great opportunity to make a valuable artistic contribution to our city.
“We are very grateful to have been invited to contribute.”
Roads Minister and Narre Warren North MP Luke Donnellan said the mural was a “great initiative and improves conditions for local communities”.
The mural was installed by Blender Studio.
The project involved the Monash Freeway Upgrade project, VicRoads, Transurban, the State Government, City of Casey and the school.
