Sunnyvale Rail Bridge (Dan Mills)

Sunnyvale Rail Bridge (Dan Mills)

In the course of upgrading the Auckland-Waitakere railway line, a number of big construction works got undertaken. The crossing of the Oratia Stream (two bridges, one for each track) incorporates pedestrian and cycle paths at the Sunnyvale station. The bridges are nondescript concrete structures, but the murals by Dan Mills (featured in this blog in connection with painted boxes) lift them a bit out of the ordinary.

The panel shown below has the inscription:

“Mural painted March 2010 by Dan + Bart, with assistance from … Hoani Waititi MaraeSunnyvale Primary SchoolBruce McLaren Intermediate School, and Waitakere City Council.”
