Project Underpass 2018

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, Nacho Station hope to paint the three cycling underpasses. The result will this cycling trail special to the community and create what will soon be known as Spring Creek Creative Ride.

  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.

Nacho Station’s plans include the installation of signage, hosting events with Bike Bendigo and the collaboration of four Bendigo artists to complete the works.

An application for funds has been made through Regional Centre for Culture - Local Grants in order to commission the four mural artists in Bendigo and pay for materials.

    The photographs above show the underpasses in order from Latrobe Bendigo Campus towards Bendigo CBD.  The Back Creek cycling path is an important link in Bendigo’s bicycle path network as it connects the Spring Gully with:  Central Bendigo.  The Bendigo Hospital.   The O'Keefe Trail.  Bendigo Creek Track.

This project is sure will be a fun 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. 

If you love the idea then shout it out on social media and let Regional Centre for Culture know this is a good thing for your community with the hashtag #projectunderpass
