Traffic signal boxes transformed into street art

City of Stonnington traffic signal box program

The Traffic Signal Box Program is coordinated by Stonnington Middle Years and Youth Services for young people who have a passion and interest in art.

With support and mentoring from professional artists, young people have been transforming traffic signal boxes on our busiest shopping strips into amazing examples of street art. Young people drive the transformation, from concept and design through to painting the boxes.

Designs for the community-based approach to graffiti prevention are inspired by a range of interests and passions including global warming, public transport and our local Stonnington architecture and environment.

With support of funding from the Victorian Government signal boxes across Stonnington have been transformed. You can find the latest round of transformations at:

  • 138 High St, Windsor
  • 50 Williams Rd, Prahran
  • 669 Malvern Rd, Toorak
  • 459 Toorak Rd, Toorak
  • 253 Malvern Rd, South Yarra
  • Cnr Surrey and Malvern Rd. Malvern
  • 130 Williams Rd, Prahran
  • 512 Malvern Rd, Prahran

Hear from participants Alexander, James, Jett and Max, mentors Shem and Juzpop and youth support worker Ho about the success of the program and the stories behind the designs.
