What is the Captains Creek Pathway project?
The gravel path that currently exists alongside Captains Creek, Belgian Gardens is set to be upgraded into a 2.5m wide reinforced concrete pathway.
What is the timeframe for the project?
The pathway will be constructed in five stages:
Stage 1 - will be constructed between Evans Street and Bishop Street. Construction started late May and
was completed mid-August 2012.
Stage 2 – will include the bridge across Captains Creek and the pathway to Heatleys Parade, Belgian Gardens.
Stages 3 – 5 from Evans Street to Dearness Street have been budgeted for in subsequent years.
The schedule to deliver the concrete pathway has been positively influenced by Ergon's $2000,000 contribution toward a community asset that would benefit the local Belgian Gardens community as part of their Fry Street substation project.
Stage 2 project progress.
Stage 2 works include a pedestrian bridge across Captains Creek and a pathway to Heatley's Parade in Belgian Gardens.
Stage 2 works commenced 30 April 2013. As at 10 May, the pathway is nearing completion, with the remaining 30m to be constructed once drainage works are finished.
The bridge across Captains Creek is undergoing construction and will be completed at a date to be advised.
Detours will be in place via local near-by streets. Please observe detour signage.
Work hours on the project will be Monday to Friday 6am to 6pm and Saturday 7am to 3pm.
Likely impacts from these works could include increased heavy vehicle traffic on Bishop Street, noise from equipment and hand tools on site including reversing beepers (a safety requirement on all moving equipment on construction sites and cannot be switched off).
Measures to reduce these impacts include managing heavy vehicle deliveries and minimising the need to reverse equipment on site.
