Be Here! Public Art Installations

The B-Line Project team and Transport for NSW are excited to announce Be Here! a public art exhibition to be rolled out on selected utility boxes located at B-Line bus stops along the corridor from Mona Vale to Neutral Bay.

Be Here! explores the faces and places that define the Northern Beaches and Lower

North Shore. From our indigenous foundations that define us and the animals, birds, plants and vistas that exemplify our unique beauty, to the people who have made and make us –

this is Sydney’s north; this is who and what we are. Be here to know our stories, to

know us, to see our faces.

Working with an experienced art consultant to provide thorough research and guide the public art process, twenty-two unique artworks have been selected which embrace the creative vision of Be Here!

Thirteen professional artists have applied their creative visions to each of the boxes which represent a significant connection and relevance to the Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore.

To connect each utility box along the 27km stretch of main roads, a linear theme has been developed by artist, Elliott Routledge, who has applied a consistent story using vibrant colours and patterns to complement each singular piece.

Look out for these new artworks as they appear on ITS cabinets at your local B-Line bus stop.

Selecting the artwork

The public art, as part of Be Here! is being rolled out at B-Line bus stops between Mona Vale and Neutral Bay towards Sydney’s CBD and is in line with the key objectives outlined in Transport for NSW’s Creativity Guideline Principles.

Working closely with local Councils, curation of the artwork selection aims to:

  • enliven the experience of travel, engaging transport customers and pedestrians and making every-day journeys pleasant and interesting
  • enhance the transport environment, responding to places, vistas, urban landscapes and buildings through subject, form, scale, materials, lighting elements and colour
  • respond to the culture of travel and enable distance responses to community, culture, city demographics, working life and local heritage
  • contribute to the provision of safe, durable, easily maintained transport infrastructure
  • be an integrated part of the design, construction and operation of transport precincts and infrastructure.
