Broadwalk Bridge Update

Unfortunately, there has been some delays through the weather causing concerns with this installation which remains underway.As you now it was hoped to complete the installation around Easter so we are about 1 week behind.

Health and safety considerations means the large crane cannot operate with winds 25+mph. Last week these averaged 23mph and so was too close to the tolerance for installation.

The good news is the first section is in. It is anticipated the second section will be Thursday of this week, weather permitting – winds forecasted at 12mph at this time. Unfortunately, there was no crane availability to rearrange for today.It will take probably a week to install and complete, with the decking the week following.

Contractors remain on site and are top soiling the lake edges at this time. Also, they are finishing the installation of the handrails on the Burma Star Bridges; additionally they are working with our gardeners to enable the West Island to be planted up this week.

But as you can see there are some good floral displays at the park with spring bedding now in full bloom

The wall on the lake is nearly finished and the island near the golf coarse is ready for planting any time now
