About the project

The existing bridge was nearing the end of its serviceable lifespan and in order to maintain a safe crossing, the bridge has been replaced with a new shared pedestrian and cyclist creek crossing.

Works to upgrade the Kenrick Close pedestrian bridge included:

  • creek bank stabilisation works
  • removing the existing timber bridge structure
  • installation of a four metre-wide concrete culvert crossing with bicycle friendly handrails  
  • installation of a new bike path entrance off Phillips Place
  • landscaping including planting 49 new trees and shrubs as well as groundcover plants.

Council would like to thank local residents for their patience while these works were undertaken.

Project timing

Works started in mid-June 2018 and were completed in late September 2018.
