Equex walkway bridge improved

Published: 29 May 2020 2:39pm

More works at the McDonald’s Park precinct have taken place this week with earthworks around the recently installed walkway bridge.

The 42-metre bridge connects vacant land on the eastern side of Marshalls Creek to the main rugby league oval at Equex. The benefits will be realised when overflow carparking is required for premier events attracting large crowds.

More than 60 truck loads of profilings were placed on the walkway approaches before 120 tonnes of road base applied to finish the surface.

A new road exiting onto Kooringal Road from the Exhibition Centre has also been completed as part of the project.

Road construction started on 13 January 2020 and reached practical completion on the 13 March 2020.

It is expected the new road will ease congestion when exiting the sporting complex, particularly after major events.
