The temporary piles that have supported the gantry will also be removed and all materials lowered onto a waiting barge in the river.

What to expect:

Part of the Clem Jones Promenade will be closed for safety while the work is undertaken. Scissor lifts will be working from the Clem Jones Promenade to assist in the gantry removal

Pedestrian and cyclist access:

The Clem Jones Promenade will be closed between the Clem Jones Russell Street Ramp and Riverside Green (see map below). Traffic controllers will be on-site to guide pedestrians and cyclists along the temporary detour. Cyclists will need to dismount and follow the detour route.
