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.

 

 

 

Enjoy an informative night of friendly networking online while hearing about the latest news about Victoria Bridge

May 2018 Meeting Update

Guest Speaker: Ian tait

This month: Are you interested in Picton’s potential for growth in the next few years?

It is said, “If you aren’t planning your life, then someone else is.” The same can be said about the town we live in.

Be involved in the development narrative of Picton. Join the members of the Picton Chamber of Commerce this Wednesday night at the Bowling club.

Guest Speaker: Ian Tait

Ian’s professional background and community involvement have led him to believe that the Botanic Gardens and adjacent sports fields are a woefully underexploited community asset. Further, a proper management and visionary master plan are urgently needed in order to prevent erosion of its values. It is widely accepted that public assets like Museums, Art Galleries and Botanic Gardens make a major contribution to the economic development and social welfare of a community.”

Ian spoke about the need to create a master plan for the Botanic Garden district to ensure that future community development be catered for and that piecemeal developments over the years such as arenas, exercise areas, botanical garden infrastructure, larger car parks etc are coordinated.

The support of the community is required to provide a vision of the plan and to form a working committee to liaise with Council.

Chamber members were supportive of Ian’s proposal and it is anticipated that Mr Tait’s request for support will be taken to other community organisation that have a stake in the future growth and development of the Picton Botanic Garden district.

Other Business

A motion was carried for the Chamber to donate $1,500 to the Wollondilly Draught Fund.
