Hampden Bridge transformation
Published: 30 Aug 2019 2:17pm
Specialist renderers and painters worked this week to bring historic Abutment A back to its past glory as the former western entrance to the Hampden Bridge.
Electrical work is also underway, in preparation for an original gas lantern to be re-installed following its restoration.
Abutment A will have a new life as a viewing platform with seating, handrails, lighting, and interpretive signage.
Landscaping of the area between the carpark area and the Wiradjuri Bridge will get underway in September.
The rejuvenation project aims to tell the story of the bridge, its builders, engineering innovation and how it transformed the city. Works are scheduled for completion in November.
