This Meeting:

to discuss

VICTORIA BRIDGE UPGRADE

Transport for NSW is upgrading the historic Victoria Bridge over Stonequarry Creek, Picton.

Stage 2 has commenced and can only be completed with a full 24/7 closure of the bridge and Prince Street to traffic.

We will be joined by an officer of Transport for New South Wales, Trifun Vusovic, who will update members about the upgrade.

This heritage listed bridge was designed by Percy Allan and opened on 7 October 1897. It features the tallest trusses in New South Wales and is one of the oldest surviving bridges of its type.

 

 

Elements of the bridge, including the top timber chord and supports under the bridge, have significantly deteriorated over time and rehabilitation is essential to maintain the safety and reliability of the heritage listed bridge and ensure its continued operation.

 

 

 

Stage 1 of the rehabilitation work was completed in early May 2021. They replaced the timber top chord structure and installed temporary supports under the bridge. Work beneath the bridge was also completed to improve support and prevent further deterioration of the structure. During the first stage of rehabilitation, the bridge was closed to traffic during the day and reopened after work hours, while maintaining the ability to reopen the bridge quickly in the event of an emergency.

The second stage of rehabilitation work will start from will take up to four months, weather permitting. Stage 2 can only be completed with a full 24/7 closure of the bridge and Prince Street to traffic. Pedestrian access will be maintained during the work. The full closure will allow them to replace the timber support structure beneath the western end of the bridge with concrete. Transport for NSW  investigated different options to carry out the work efficiently while providing a safe environment for motorists and workers. But the location presents a unique space that restricts site compounds, parking and work space. It is not possible to carry out this work while Prince Street and the bridge are open to traffic. Stage 2 has been scheduled for completion outside of bushfire season.

February 2021 Meeting Update

By For Home Page, Previous Meetings, Projects

UPDATE

Wednesday 24th February 2021

We had a great turnout at last night’s meeting where we heard from Council Officers and Consultants about the  Wollondilly Community, Cultural and Civic Precinct.

For those who have not heard the news Wollondilly Shire Council was successful in obtaining funding for cultural and civic development from the Government’s Western Sydney City Deal. This funding has been provided to improve cultural and civic infrastructure and last night we were updated on the development progress of the ten year project to upgrade Wollondilly’s Civic District in Picton.

Stage one of the four stage project is already under way with the refurbishment of the Community Hall and architectural design preferences being made for the public areas and building facades.

Included in stage one development (2020-2023) is the demolition of buildings and relocation of some services, new car parking, initial refurbishments of the Shire Hall, construction of a new performance space and construction of a new childcare building.

Stage two (2020-2024) includes construction of a new Council Services Centre and basement parking.

Stage three (2023-2027) includes the creation of a new green civic square, demolition of existing Council building, further Shire Hall improvements, additional car parking.

Stage four (2026-2030) includes the construction of new library and learning centre, repurposing of existing library, and public domain works across the Precinct and to Colden Street and Corbett Lane (formerly Manolis Lane).

Officers took questions from members who had concerns regarding traffic movement and green spaces.

At a previous meeting Chamber members were updated with the traffic management plan for Picton which is already being implemented. Integrating existing traffic management and town spaces plan with the new cultural civic centre project has been a large part of the planning process. A village green has been incorporated into the plan with an expected use for community events and markets.

We will certainly be keeping a keen interest in the progress while working with Council providing feedback.
