Box beauty

Seeing fewer unsightly traffic boxes around Auckland recently? That might just be because they have been transformed into canvases dressed with Resene colours and the artistry of Sabine and Doug Ford who have motivated local businesses to play their part decorating traffic boxes with art. 42 traffic boxes and over 19 murals are beautifying Auckland suburbs while other Business Associations and the Waitakere City Council have teams of artists working in their areas. While acknowledging there are still many unsightly traffic boxes dotted around the streets, the gradual change from eyesore to artwork isn't going unnoticed.
