Construction activities in March will include:

  • continued works in Scott Street including earthworks and concreting for the construction of the northern footpath
  • continued installation of concrete furniture and garden beds on the bridge deck
  • commence installation of precast stairs connecting Scott Street to C.T. White Park

  • opening the riverside shared pathway in C.T. White Park and removing the temporary shared path
  • bridge deck concrete pours from the marine construction area
  • relocating the navigation channel closer to the CBD and underneath the bridge structure to allow marine works to progress towards Kangaroo Point which involves:
    • reducing the vessel clearance height to 12.3m above sea level
  • installation of final overwater bridge deck span over the navigation channel.

What to expect

Expected impacts:

  • construction activities including excavation, steel fixing, welding, scaffolding and concreting works
  • barge movements for materials and equipment deliveries
  • noise and low levels of vibration associated with the use of equipment and machinery such as cranes, rock breakers, concrete pumps, excavators and trucks
  • lighting associated with night works
  • traffic control and signage to direct pedestrians, cyclists, scooter riders and motorists around work as required.
