17 June 2014 Media Release
The pedestrian walkway across Goodwood Road (rail overpass – adjacent to Millswood Station), has been temporarily closed by Council. As Council’s primary focus is safety for pedestrians and motorists, this proactive approach has been taken to allow for assessment and repairs.
Inspections by Council and the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) have confirmed that portions of the concrete structure supporting the walkway decking have deteriorated to a stage where intervention is required.
Council is working closely with structural engineers and DPTI by undertaking an urgent assessment, investigating repair options and determining the timing and location of road closures.
It is anticipated that work to remove the deteriorating concrete sections will be undertaken in the near future, followed by replacement works. Repairs are expected to take approximately 10 days to complete.
