Grace Park Bridge

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.

  1. I think it’s disgraceful. A temporary new bridge in November….I’ll believe it when I see it. The new walkway down to the Yarra by the Barkers Road bridge was meant to only take a few months ( according to the posted notice.) It took nearly a year to complete. Let’s hope they will do better with the Grace Park bridge. As a pendioner I used it regularly to walk up to Glenferrie. I find it’s closure most inconvenient.
