A memorial wall commemorates Tasmanian truckdrivers who have died while working.

Twin walls carry the names of the deceased. Seats and landscaping allow for contemplation in a tasteful setting and a third wall is visible to traffic on the Midland Highway, to give the memorial added profile. 

The memorial wall has 60 plaques to remember truck drivers who have been killed at work, either on or off the road.
