27/10/09 - Footbridge Update

27 October 2009

This week work will be carried out at Quart Pot Creek to install the new prefabricated pedestrian footbridge, unless delayed by rising creek levels caused by recent rains.

The new footbridge has been designed to be constructed offsite, which enables it to be installed quickly once onsite.  The footbridge will allow access for mobility scooters and wheelchairs.

Once installed, work will need to be performed to connect the new footpaths with the footbridge.  Lighting of the footpaths and the installation of handrails will begin during November.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads, and Council, are looking forward to having the foodbridge ready for use at the end of Novermber 2009, however this all depends on weather conditions.
