Work is underway with Centennial Parklands to reinstate the pedestrian footbridge over Kensington Pond in Centennial Park.
The Kensington Pond Footbridge project will provide the access point to the park for Kensington residents, taking into consideration a likely rise in visitor numbers arriving from the south via the Royal Randwick Light Rail stop.
During April/May crews prioritised constructing an access way and a piling/crane platform along the western bank of Kensington Pond and in June completed the installation of the sub-structure foundation piles that will support the bridge deck. The project is now busy at work fabricating the bridge and its components. All of the bridge deck materials have been produced on shore in Australia and are scheduled to be installed later this year.
The Kensington Pond Footbridge forms part of Centennial Park and Moore Park Trust’s broader 2040 development masterplan and is expected to be complete in late 2020. For the latest construction updates, visit MySydney.nsw.gov.au
