Works start on Surf Parade

Works on the construction of the Ayr Creek pedestrian bridge and the foreshore shared pathway along Surf Parade in Inverloch are now underway.

The bridge works are expected to be completed by the end of September 2016 and the path works by the end of October 2016, weather permitting.

Bass Coast Shire Council’s General Manager Infrastructure, Felicity Sist, said a road closure for Ramsey Boulevard between Abbott Street and Veronica Street will be in place whilst the bridge is being installed.

“We have been advised by our contractor that the bridge will arrive on heavy vehicles and lifted into place on 13 September. The road will re-open after the bridge has been safely installed,” Ms Sist said.

“Road users will need to seek alternative routes during the bridge installation period. Our contractor will be notifying and working closely with local residents within this section of road. Appropriate detours will be in place during any road closures.

“Contractors will also make every effort to minimise disruptions to motorists, school buses, residents and local businesses.”
