Kent Street Weir Update – Notice of Closure of Temporary bridge

Progress to date

The project is nearing completion and the weir is starting to take shape.

  •  The weir gates have been installed and tested, and are working as they should
  •  The fishway is complete, including the sandblasting artwork on the fishway walls
  •  The walkway balustrade has been installed and the flooring is due for completion soon

Temporary Bridge Closures

As a result of widening the walkway across the weir, the tie-ins at each end also need to be widened to connect the walkway to the existing cycle path.

In order to complete this work, the temporary bridge will need to be closed for a period of time next week from Saturday 2nd December.  It is anticipated that the temporary bridge will be closed intermittently for approximately 3-4 days.  You may wish to seek an alternative route across the Canning River during this time – the nearest crossing point is Greenfield Street Bridge.
