Waiteata footbridge removed for repairs

Media Release

Waiteata footbridge removed for repairs

Gisborne District Council will be removing another footbridge for urgent maintenance this week. The footbridge between Waiteata Street and Richardson Avenue will be removed on Wednesday 10 August for approximately two weeks. All those who normally use the footbridge will have to take an alternative route down Russell and Fox Street. The footbridge needs urgent repairs to the deck and will be repainted.

The footbridge is well used as a shortcut to Sunvale Crescent and Forest Park Lane by residents in the area and recreational walkers.

The district’s footbridges are inspected regularly. Recently a number of them have needed urgent repairs. Hall Street footbridge was repaired last year and at the moment Nelson Park and now Waiteata footbridge are having their decks replaced and are being repainted.

The work involves sand blasting the structure to remove old paint that may contain lead. For this reason it is more economic and better for the health of the streams to completely remove the bridge, complete the work and then reinstall.

Gisborne District Council apologies for any inconvenience this may cause general users.
