Work starts on pedestrian path near Rozelle Bay maritime precinct
24 October 2013
Pedestrians and road users are soon to benefit from improved access to the maritime precinct at Rozelle Bay with work to build a pedestrian path starting this week.
“Work will be carried out to build a new pedestrian pathway alongside the existing shared pedestrian and cycle pathway on the south side of the City West Link between The Crescent and James Craig road at Rozelle Bay.
Roads and Maritime Services Maritime Director Michael Wright said the NSW Government allocated $396,000 as part of the Rozelle and Blackwattle Bay Maritime Precinct Project to improve pedestrian access.
“Early work including site preparation is under way with major work on the project which is expected to start later this week,” Mr Wright said.
“Roads and Maritime will install the new footpath to replace the informal path in the grassed area.
“Work will be carried out weekdays from 7am to 6pm and from 8am to 1pm on Saturdays.
“The upgrade is expected to be completed in December, weather permitting.
“Residents are reminded Roads and Maritime has also started work for the $2.4 million project to upgrade essential services including power, water and wastewater at the nearby Rozelle Bay maritime precinct.
“Every effort will be made to minimise noise from the work,” Mr Wright said.
