Users of Grace Park will be well aware of the collapse of the pedestrian and cycling bridge over the Hawthorn main drain (which used to be called Hawthorn Creek by the way). The notice displayed talks about a new bridge happening in November (see below). For some reason the council is going to build a temporary bridge that will then be replaced when they provide funding to implement this part of the Grace Park management plan.
It seems very strange that the council cannot bring forward their own plans to redevelop this part of the park and save themselves the cost of building a temporary bridge. We’ll await developments.
