Parks, cycling and pedestrian paths, playgrounds and public art are lasting ways that we contribute to more liveable local communities and active mobility. More than roads
“I love the artwork in the Kingsgrove underpasses. The improved lighting and the new vibrancy of the tunnels means I feel safer using them as well.” Verity—Kingsgrove, NSW
As well as supporting local communities, we also need to consider how our assets can contribute to local ecology. In FY22, working with Landcare Australia, we assessed the landscaping around our first asset, CityLink, to create a biodiversity masterplan. Plan actions include indigenous species selection and community engagement to help us improve CityLink’s long-term environmental, community and operational performance. We also added some new colour to the elevated section of CityLink’s pillars in Flemington with a mural project. A local artist created these striking works as part of a Moonee Valley Council initiative. We also invited Melbourne’s community to help us name two new pedestrian bridges being built as part of the West Gate Tunnel Project, with finalists to be announced in early FY23. In NSW, the Canal to Creek public art program continued to generate value for communities. This program comprises more than 20 public art works (including playgrounds, murals and interactive light installations) each exploring connections between people and place. The program also includes an educational portal designed to engage high school students with the artworks and the artists’ intentions.
In FY22, we launched the first Canal to Creek Prize, a visual art competition for students in Years 7 to 10, attracting more than 200 entries from more than 70 schools. The winning artworks are now displayed at the WestConnex Motorway Control Centre. We also commissioned three new artworks through the Inner West Council’s Perfect Match program. This initiative brings artists, residents, business owners and community together to collaboratively create street artworks, while also deterring unwanted tagging. All three works are now featured in the Canal to Creek portal with supporting education materials. Since it launched in FY21, 9,000 students from more than 60 countries have accessed the public art program portal.
