Grundy Street footbridge removed for repairs

From Monday 1 November all those who normally use the footbridge that links Grundy Street and Oak Street will have to find an alternative for the next couple of weeks. The footbridge will be temporarily removed for repairs.

The footbridge is used extensively by cyclists and pedestrians to link up with the footbridge between Oak Street and Aberdeen Road. This provides access to the secondary and intermediate schools in the area.  Access will be from Stout Street.

The repairs are likely to take 2 weeks.   The maintenance work will include painting and replacing the deck on the bridge. The footbridge will be unbolted and removed so that the steel can be sandblasted safely without any risk of polluting the Mangapapa Stream.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause users.
