Six New Murals Paint a Picture of Road Safety in the Wheatbelt

The RAC’s Elephant in the Wheatbelt campaign rolled into Moora during July as the last of six road safety murals was created at the Community Resource Centre.

Perth based artist Rachelle Dusting completed the final mural, watched eagerly by the official Elephant in the Wheatbelt. The elephant image serves as a reminder of the campaign and is well-recognised around the Wheatbelt region.

The road safety theme of the Moora mural was “slow down”, which ties in with a developing road safety action plan at the Shire of Moora.
 
Southern Cross and Dowerin are the other two towns in the Northern Wheatbelt region to host the elephant in 2018. The first mural, incorporating a seatbelt theme, was produced in Dowerin and the second mural, featuring driver fatigue messages was produced in Southern Cross (very appropriate given it is the location of the original Driver Reviver site in WA, and still operates on public holidays).
