Maintenance works to begin on the Nelly Bay Pedestrian Link
Townsville City Council plans to undertake follow-up maintenance works on the recently completed Nelly Bay Pedestrian Link.
As part of these works, Council intends to:
provide further erosion control measures to address scouring at the apex of the hill and bush track steps
lower the project information sign to minimise glare to oncoming traffic
replace the mesh wire along the pathway's handrail where required.
A local contractor, CES Civil, will deliver these works on behalf of Council.
Council has scheduled these maintenance works to commence on Tuesday, 3 May 2022, and expects, weather permitting, the project to take six (6) days to complete. Work hours will be 6 am to 5 pm.
As illustrated in the traffic management plan, during these works, traffic flow along a section of Nelly Bay Road will temporarily become one-way and guided by portable traffic lights.
The bush track from Picnic Bay and the linking pathway will be closed during the day whilst works are undertaken.
Council will continue to update residents as these works progress.
