Shoalhaven City Council has commenced works on the Moona Moona Creek Pedestrian Bridge with the project expected to be completed in late July.
Works on the sea wall extension are underway based on tidal movements. The piles and bridge beams are being manufactured off site, and installation of the piles is planned in the coming weeks.
In order to deliver this project for the July deadline, the project has been granted extended working hours, including weekends but will depend on weather and tidal conditions.
Works will be undertaken in accordance with the recommended standard hours set down in the Department of Environment and Climate Change Interim Construction Noise Guidelines (Monday to Friday – 7 am to 6 pm, Saturday -8am to 1 pm), on the basis that the project will minimise truck and machinery operations and only light works will take place.
Additional hours will be requested to complete the project to include on Saturday from 7 am to 5 pm, and 8am to 4 pm Sunday. For the times outside the recommended hours as already approved, Council has undertaken a letterbox drop to advise affected residents of units adjoining the work site, as well as advertising on Council’s website and in the relevant papers.
