The City of Johannesburg and The Department of Transport commissioned the public installation as a tribute to the bus boycotts from the apartheid era.
Tribute is also paid to the architecture, people, cultures, noteworthy geographic points as well as the transformation off transport that this part of the road supported over the the development and growth of Johannesburg city. The wall is approximately 3000 square meters in total.
