C.T. White Park Lookout rehabilitation project - Kangaroo Point

Brisbane City Council is pleased to advise rehabilitation works on the CT White Park Lookout structure in CT White Park, Kangaroo Point will start in early June 2019 and take approximately two months to complete, weather and construction conditions permitting.

Summary

Address CT White Park Lookout, CT White Park, Kangaroo Point
Ward Gabba
Project outcome Improved safety for pedestrians and extended life of the structure.
Latest update Construction works in June 2019.

Background

This project is part of Council’s commitment to improving quality of life for residents while ensuring our city has the services and infrastructure to meet the needs of future generations.

Council has identified that the lookout structure in CT White Park requires rehabilitation works to ensure it remains safe and serviceable for the community. During a regular maintenance inspection, Council identified that the riverbed around the piles has eroded to an unacceptable condition and works are required to enhance the life of the structure and increase safety for pedestrians using the structure.

CT White Park Lookout structure is a ‘jetty’ platform that comes off the main Riverwalk; located approximately 200 metres south along the boardwalk from the Thornton Street ferry terminal.

Construction works and timings

The works will involve installing rock armour scour protection around the structure support piles to protect from future erosion. The works will only affect the ‘jetty’ platform off the main Riverwalk, so pedestrians will still have full access to the main Riverwalk along CT White Park during construction. As these works will be carried out under the surface of the water, there will be no visible difference to the lookout structure after the work is complete.

The majority of the construction works will be undertaken from 6:30am to 6:30pm, Monday to Saturday. Sunday works may also be undertaken where tide conditions are favourable. Throughout construction, properties in close proximity to the site may experience some construction noise, vehicle and/or water vessel movements around the site location.

Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to the local community during this work and Council is committed to keeping local residents informed and will provide advance notice of any out-of-hours works and anticipated construction impacts. We apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause and appreciate your patience while these important works are completed.
