Project Underpass 2018

IMG_4150.JPG

We've seen some beautiful developments to the cycling trails of Bendigo in recent years. Most recently, the extended works to the Back Creek Trail that connects LaTrobe University Bendigo and the art and culture precincts of Bendigo.

In collaboration with Bike Bendigo and a grant from Creative Victoria we've painted the three cycling underpasses along Back Creek Trail.

  Pink lines  indicate the main cycling areas connected by the Back Creek Trail   Yellow line  indicates the Latrobe to Chancery Lane suggested path, the roads along this path are most suitable for riders.   Blue line  indicates some of the main roads in Bendigo that can be difficult to navigate by bike.

This project has been a blast for the artists involved, and we are looking forward to teaming up with Bike Bendigo to deliver more than just these three epic painted walls.
