Community input is being sought by Council and Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) for the establishment of a truck wash in Broken Hill.

Truck washes play an important role in vehicle productivity and maintenance, as well as an important role in protecting NSW’s biosecurity.

Under the 'Fixing Country Truck Washes' program, the NSW Government and Australian Government will each contribute $5 million over the next two years to provide co-funding for new and existing truck washes.

Exhibition | Folded Lines - Remnim Alexander Tayco

Folded Lines is a series of works that juxtapose elements of a traditional landscape with angular geometric forms. Using a linear perspective grid, simple plotted lines become a mass of three dimensional shapes, enhancing the illusion of depth and space. In contrast, the enclosure of the landscape on a platform or in a viewing window creates a sense of density and confinement. The combination of visually discordant elements invoke a dichotomy of conflicting senses; tranquil yet agitated, surreal but familiar, meditative then energetic.
