A fundraising event is being held on the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail on November 29 as part of a project to create eye-catching murals on a concrete underpass near Colinton.
The Nurinda Road underpass is just north of the D’Aguilar Highway at Colinton and has become a target for graffiti.
The Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Users Association has come up with the art plan, suggesting silo artists Brightsiders could produce murals featuring the trains that formerly plied the route.
The fundraiser will include horse riders, cyclists, walkers and runners heading towards Moore, with all profits donated to the Nurinda Overpass project.
- Cyclists ($30 fee) will start at Toogoolawah (27 km), led by Paul Heymans
- Runners ($20 fee) will start at Harlin (13km), led by Janet Smith
- Hikers ($20 fee) will depart from Heartland Heavy Horses (intersection of Brisbane Valley and D’Aguilar highways), led by Ron Grant (8.5 km)
- Horse riders are being organised by the Brisbane Valley Trail Riders (ph. 0422-156-619).
Everyone will leave at 7:00am in a bid to reach Moore (passing via the Nurinda underpass) about the same time.
Morning tea and a presentation by Brightsiders at the Moore Memorial Hall in Moore is included in the entry fee.
