About the project

Works will include:

  • installing scaffolding under and around the bikeway bridge
  • cutting existing concrete deck slab and kerb at each expansion joint 
  • raising the deck level using fabricated supporting frames and hydraulics
  • removing old mortar pads 
  • installing new concrete mortar pads
  • reinstating the deck and kerbs
  • reinstating expansion joint seals. 

Access across the bikeway bridge is expected to be maintained during construction, site conditions permitting. A traffic controller will be in place to ensure the safe use of the bikeway bridge during work hours between 6am and 6pm, Monday to Saturday. Pedestrians and cyclists will be required to follow signage and cyclists will be required to dismount during work hours.

Cyclists and pedestrians may experience some construction impacts including:

  • temporary ramping
  • reduced lanes and lane width
  • traffic management including the use of stop and go movements 
  • construction vehicle movements with reversing alarms and flashing lights
  • short delays to facilitate vehicle movements
  • construction noise. 

Outside of work hours, limited access to the bikeway bridge will be maintained and cyclists will not need to dismount, however will be required to follow signage including reduced speed and careful riding behaviours during the changed conditions.

Signage will be in place to direct pedestrians and cyclists throughout the duration of these works.

Project timing

Construction is scheduled to start late June 2020 and is anticipated to be complete late September 2020, weather and construction conditions permitting.
