“The Bridge is a simple three span bridge designed to suit the natural geotechnical characteristics and riparian conditions. The three-span design ensures limited impact to the natural flows of the creek whilst achieving an optimised construction time to minimise construction works in Cedar Creek. Rockwork has been designed to protect abutments from higher velocity flows.” – PEAKURBAN

Under the Development Application A005564638, the project will also include improvements to Minnie Street through minor widening, as well as enhancements to the intersection at McAlroy Road and Upper Kedron Road, and a section of Levitt Road.

The Ferny Grove & Upper Kedron Residents Association noted that the minor widening of Minnie Street will benefit residents with safer traffic and easier access to the bus service. The Group is working with government and council representatives to further its advocacy to straighten Minnie Street rather than widening.

FGUKRA also revealed that funding has been secured for the design of Minnie Street’s realignment and would work with government and council representatives should any community consultation be required in the future. They are also advocating for a bus route along Minnie Street to provide more public transportation options to the wider part of the community.

The bridgework and upgrades, which commenced in May 2022, are estimated to be completed in nine months, in early 2023.
