A MOST unusual sight is greeting motorists driving south on the Pacific Hwy opposite the new Kirkwood Dr interchange in Tweed Heads.

A giant sized graffiti of what looks like a vampire version of Mr Burns, from the Simpsons TV show, has sprung up.

The work is on cement guards on stage two of the Kirkwood Rd project, west of the current exit.

Perhaps the vandal was interrupted as part of Mr Burns is yet to be coloured in.
