Webster St bridge gets bitumen nearly 3 months late, More Myer carpark works

This morning, construction workers were finishing the bitumen laying along the Middle Road service lane and the Webster Street Bridge. It has been a long time coming, but residents can now finally make use of the bridge that has been long awaited for. Nonetheless, it is still disappointing to see such slow progress - the laying of bitumen was nearly 3 months behind schedule, and could not have come soon enough. Project management seemed to only care about getting the roadworks to the stage where shoppers would be adequately catered for. Local residents were considered a low priority.
The Middle Road footpath was briefly closed whilst the rest of the perspex windows were installed along the wall. The clear perspex windows will prevent pedestrians from trying to lean over the edge of the wall, which carries the risk of falling onto the road and incoming traffic.
More building materials have been delivered to the Chadstone Place/Myer carpark. It is unknown what type of structure the steel beams will form . It may be buildings for new shops, or a new level of carpark.
