GRAFFITI is an ongoing problem faced not only by the Public Transport Authority (PTA) and the community.

The PTA spends about $2.5 million annually removing graffiti and window scratchings.

In an effort to reduce the incidence of graffiti on public transport infrastructure, the PTA established the Urban Art program.

The aim of the program is to identify and transform graffiti hotspots into public works of art by professional and respected urban artists.

Artists and young people created an aquarium artwork at the Warnbro train station as part of the project.

Young people are encouraged to take part in the Urban Art project to channel their energy into legal art activities.

Since the Urban Art project started, there has been reduced the level of trespass and graffiti on the network.
