Work on Webster bridge finally recommences, downramps ready for bitumen

New progress was seen on the Webster Street bridge yesterday. Underlay material has been laid down, ready for bitumen to be laid. The corner kerbs have also been completed, as are the kerbs along the Middle Rd service lane - in fact the whole lane, including the downramp to Warrigal Road is ready for bitumen laying.
New perspex windows have been installed along the top of the wall between Middle Road and the new footpath. This will prove to be a target for valdalism. Being perspex brings the same vulerabilities as bus shelter glass. The other side of Middle Rd already has graffiti markings, so it will only be a matter of time before the perspex windows become scratched or burnt.
Workers have also finally turned their attention to the Warrigal Road pedestrian crossing. New concrete has been laid, displacing the gravel pesdestrians endured for the past 12 months.
