Date Completion 1992
Description From 'The Bay and other Artwalks': "The artist's colourful and striking additions create a unique and memorable landmark in the centre of a previously unremarkable site. Strong three-dimensional geometric forms covered with standard road traffic signs are matched with the topiary shapes of the surrounding evergreen shrubs. The sculpture's reflective surfaces light up when caught in passing car headlights and have helped to earn it the popular title Magic Roundabout."
