REDLANDS Floral Art Club members have used flower arrangements as the inspiration to transform the Ormiston rail bridge from dull concrete gray to a spray of myriad colours.
Led by club president Val Decker and Sunshine Coast-based artist Sarah Sculley who designed the bridge artwork, a team of about 20 people used stencils to paint the high bridge walls.
Redland City Council's Wendy Boglary said she had first contacted Queensland Rail about the idea in 2011.
"I've written to QR every year since," she said. "It's finally here but it did take eight years to deliver.
"It's very exciting."
The artwork is part of Queensland Rail's Positive pARTnership program to reduce graffiti and vandalism and foster pride in rail infrastructure.
The club's involvement comes more than a year after their property, including donated books, was lost when the Scout hall at Ormiston burnt down.
Club president Val Decker said members were keen to take part in the QR program.
Ms Sculley studied some of the clubs floral pieces before converting them into stencils which were then spray painted.
Ms Sculley said she hoped the project would give club members skills and confidence in stencilling and spray painting.
"I hope the mural gives the community a sense of ownership and pride in the space," she said.
