Work Update September 2014


Project completed on time in the first week of September.

The beginning of September saw the bridge re-opened to the public and the final site clean up and the removal of the remaining fencing was completed in the first week. Practical completion was issued for the 3rd September. After this some additional works were completed at the Bayswater Avenue entrance, with the only outstanding item being the reinstatement of the footpath which has now been completed and the installation of an additional length of Totara handrail which was installed in time for the official opening on the 5th October.

The project has been very successful on all fronts, completed on time and under budget, with no MTI or LTI’s and full compliance on the environmental audits.

This has been reinforced by the numerous unsolicited comments from the client, general public and the local residents and was specifically mentioned at the official opening. Further evidence of the great relationship with the local residents was the almost constant stream of delicious home baking that was delivered for the boys smoko.
