About the project

Works to upgrade the Kingfisher Creek pedestrian and cyclist crossing will include:

  • installation of a new 3.6 metre-wide concrete bridge with bicycle friendly handrails  
  • construction of a new three metre-wide concrete path that connects into the existing local path network
  • creek bank stabilisation works
  • removing the existing culvert crossing structure.

Access across the existing culvert crossing will be maintained where possible, however closures will be required during certain construction activities to ensure the safety of pedestrians, cyclists and workers. Alternative access will be available at all times and detour signage will be in place to direct cyclists and pedestrians.

In order to upgrade the Kingfisher Creek pedestrian and cyclist crossing, Council has identified a number of trees will need to be removed as part of the project. All work will be carried out in accordance with the relevant environmental guidelines and Council will make every effort to minimise environmental impacts during construction. Vegetation impacts will be offset in accordance with Council policies and relevant legislative requirements.
