Work starts to build Heathcote pedestrian bridge

Lee Evans Member for Heathcote today welcomes the start preliminary work to relocate utilities on 8 October as part of work to build a new pedestrian bridge across the Princes Highway at Heathcote.

“A new pedestrian bridge will be built north of the Oliver Street intersection to offer a safer crossing between the Heathcote Railway Station and shops, schools and residences and to reduce traffic congestion,” Mr Evans said.

“Work will be carried out for around three months on both sides of the highway for about 50 metres on either side of Oliver Street.

“Preliminary work will be carried out from 8am to 5pm and at night from 8pm to 5am.

“Traffic is not expected to be impacted by this work and local residents will be notified of any interruption to services prior to the start of work.

“In early 2014, Roads and Maritime will start work to build the bridge which will include lifts and stairs on both sides, lighting to help protect the safety of users and some pedestrian fencing. “Roads and Maritime thanks road users for their patience while this work is carried out,” Mr Evans said.
