Construction Updates

Crane demobilisation at South Bank from Neville Bonner Bridge works

Night work will occur on Monday 9 November and Tuesday 10 November, for two nights only, while a 250 tonne crawler crane is moved out of the construction area at South Bank.


Night works: Between 6:30pm and 5am on the evenings of Monday 9 November and Tuesday 10 November 2020, Fitzgerald will demobilise a 250 tonne crawler crane from their construction site at South Bank.


Ten trucks will enter and exit via Russell Street, South Bank and be escorted under traffic control to and from the ramp area adjacent to the fenced construction site.

The trucks will be surrounded by temporary fencing while the vehicles are loaded.

See attached map for details.

What to expect:

While the crane is being disassembled some noise may be heard.  Equipment expected to be used includes a service crane, lifting equipment, large flat-bed trucks and semi-trailers, generators, flood lights and hydraulic tools. Traffic controllers will be in place within the South Bank Parklands, on Russell and Grey Streets to assist with the disassembly and removal of this equipment from site.

Pedestrian and Cyclist Access:

Pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained at all times, however at a reduced width. As crane lifts are occurring temporary holds may be required to create a safe exclusion zone. Traffic controllers will be on hand at all times to safely manage pedestrian and cyclist movements.
