About the project

Council has identified the need to provide a bridge connection over Cedar Creek, to greatly improve safety and accessibility for local residents, pedestrians and cyclists travelling through this area.

The 21 metre-long bridge will extend from Beech Street and connect to the existing shared path north of Nelson Place in Ferny Grove.

The project will include:

  • constructing a 21 metre-long bridge structure with a three metre-wide concrete deck
  • extending the existing pathway approaches at either end of the bridge
  • embankment protection works
  • micro-piling
  • landscaping works
  • tree removals.

Project timing

Works are anticipated to commence in late June 2020 and take approximately four months to complete, weather permitting.

Work will generally be undertaken from 7am to 5pm Monday to Saturday.

Impacts during construction

Some out-of-hours works may be required and Council will provide advance notification to the local community. Pedestrian and cyclist detours will be in place when required.

Local residents and businesses in close proximity to the site may experience some construction impacts associated with these works, including noise, dust, vibration and odour.

Council has identified up to 20 trees that will need to be removed as part of this project. These trees will be removed in consultation with an arborist. Council is committed to minimising any impact on the environment and will undertake offset planting and landscaping after construction. Council will be replanting 20 trees between the height of 1.5m and 3.5m within the project area after construction is complete.

Project benefits

The path will improve access and safety for local residents and pedestrians and cyclists who travel through this area.
