100 years sign

Have you been heading to the airport and seen the ‘100 Years’ sign on the M80 Ring Road and Tullamarine Freeway interchange? Are you wondering what it is and what it represents?

The sign was installed by VicRoads along with the Tulla Sydney Alliance as part of VicRoads Centenary year, to celebrate 100 years since the establishment of the Country Roads Board in 1913 – now VicRoads.

The concept for the sculptural sign was devised by architect Peter Elliott who is responsible for the urban design strategy of the new sections of the M80 Ring Road.

The sign will allow the public and motorists to continue to reflect and remember the past 100 years and how transport and travel has changed over the decades.

The M80 Upgrade project team, including the Tulla Sydney Alliance have worked on the iconic stretch of the M80 Ring Road, so it is a prominent location for the sign to be installed.

In partnership with the Tulla Sydney Alliance partners Thiess, Parsons Brinckerhoff, Hyder and VicRoads, the sign was constructed by artist Jason Waterhouse from the Stockroom in Kyneton. It took approximately 360 hours to construct and was fabricated using 100mm x 8mm mild steel finished with enamel paint.
