INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 17, 2008 13 NEWS Ashfield Mayor Ted Cassidy with artist Robin Martin in front of his mural. Picture: BRENT McGILVARY ~PP166425 Hot spot a beauty ZILKA GROGAN TAKING a walk through Ashfield town centre is set to become easier on the eyes. A 2m-high mural of a steam train has been completed at Fox's Lane, directly opposite the railway station. And later this month, the nearby railway tunnel will get a similar facelift. Ashfield Mayor Ted Cassidy said the Fox's Lane mural, by artist Robin Martin, had proven popular with the community. ''The new mural replaces an old piece of work that was becoming a hot spot for graffiti,'' Cr Cassidy said. Ashfield Council and RailCorp have launched a second initiative in the Brown St railway tunnel. Residents are being asked to paint panels to be installed in the tunnel. Bronwyn Tuohy, who is managing the Underline Project, hopes to include as many designs as possible. ''We are looking for designs that express the feeling one gets from participating in a community, of being included,'' she said. ''We encourage everyone to have a go.'' Ms Tuohy said the benefits of initiatives such as the Underline Project were more than just aesthetic. ''Not only does it beautify an area, it allows the community an opportunity to contribute positively to their immediate environment,'' she said. The deadline to submit a design for the project is Monday, July 21.
