A new mural has been unveiled on sound barriers at Robina to discourage graffiti and add a new visual attraction for the local area.

The mural was designed by talented Robina State High School students and spans sound barriers near the M1’s Exit 82 northbound off ramp.

Member for Mudgeeraba Ros Bates and Robina State High School Principal Julie Warwick visited the mural today to see firsthand the way the local school had contributed to the community.

“The design for this new mural was provided by Robina High School students and depicts the pioneering women of Mudgeeraba on a floral background,” Ms Bates said.

“Robina High is a great school in my electorate and I was very pleased to have been able to get local students involved in the design of this fantastic new mural.

“Murals like this are not only interesting visual attractions for the local area, but also discourage graffiti vandals from targeting sound barriers.”

Ms Warwick said the murals were a testament to the talent and hard work of Robina State High School students.

“Robina State High School was delighted to have been approached by Ms Bates and work with the Department of Transport and Main Roads to design this mural and contribute to the local area,” Ms Warwick said.

“Robina High is home to many talented students, and they were thrilled to have been given the opportunity to design this new mural.”
