Waterproofing on Sydney Harbour Bridge cycleway
Waterproofing work starts on Sydney Harbour Bridge cycleway
Changed conditions will be in place from Sunday 15 December on the Sydney Harbour Bridge cycleway for waterproofing work to be carried out.
“Roads and Maritime Services will carry out waterproofing for 20 night shifts between 8.30pm and 5.30am from Sunday 15 to Thursday 19 December. Work will resume from Sunday 5 January next year,” a Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.
“Waterproofing work on the Sydney Harbour Bridge pedestrian path has been delayed due to wet weather and is now expected to be completed in early February 2014, weather permitting.
“It is the first time major work has been carried out on the paths since the bridge opened in 1932. The work aims to improve safety and reduce future maintenance costs.
“The cycleway will be closed to cyclists during the work with cyclists directed to cross the bridge using the pedestrian footpath.
“Traffic controllers will be in place at each end of the bridge and in the middle of the cycleway with portable radios to ensure pedestrians are advised a cyclist is approaching.
“Message signs will be in place on both paths to ensure cyclists have advance warning of the closures and detours,” the spokesperson said.
Residents have been advised of the continuing work by letter. No traffic lanes on the bridge need to close for work on the cycleway.
Roads and Maritime thanks road users and residents for their patience while work is carried out.
Every effort will be made to reduce noise from the work.
