Traffic Control Box Transformation..... ???

It all started on Facebook.....
one of Madison's friends Bella was saying how she would love
 to do some "street art" ..... so I suggested she paint 
the ugly graffiti covered Traffic Control Box
 that is adjacent to Recycled Relix.

So when Bella said yes I made a few phone calls and finally
had a call from a gentleman at Launceston City Council.
It turns out that the Mayor Albert Van Zetten has also wanted 
these unsightly boxes to be a work of art!

So after some design tooing and froing we had the first photo
shoot today with Launceston's Mayor Albert Van Zetten.
The Box will be painted to create a clean slate and then
weather permitting Bella will start her work of art on Sunday.

Due to the nature of the corner (it is as noisy and busy as anything)
Bella will commence on Sunday with full traffic control i.e. 
the speed limit will be reduced to 40 and she will have signage
 and barriers placed on the road to ensure she
 doesn't literally stop traffic!
She also has to wear full safety gear including a 
hat (to prevent sunburn) so she will be very 
visible in her fluorescent vest!

In liaison with Julie from the council - its all systems go!
