Printer-friendly version
Removing four footbridge abutments
Monday 2 May for about six weeks

Where are we working?

Map. Work areas (red): 1 and 2 on the Avonside Drive side of the river (Porritt Park is between Avonside Drive and work areas 1/2), 3 is on the Halberg Street side of the river, 4 is on the Avonside Drive side of the river (opposite 3).

What are we doing

  • Following the previous removal of two earthquake damaged footbridges, SCIRT will be returning to the Avon River to remove four bridge abutments.
  • It will take two weeks to remove abutment 1 and 2, and another four weeks to remove abutments 3 and 4.
  • While we are working at each location, the river will be blocked for use around the work site.
  • We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this work.
