The new footpath connection along the southern side of Constitution Road between Bowden Street and See Street, Meadowbank and new pedestrian crossing, connecting pedestrians back to the northern side of Constitution Road at the See Street intersection and through to Meadowbank Station, has been officially opened.

The reopening follows an intensive three months of onsite construction activity and provides much needed improvements to access and mobility for both pedestrians and active transport users within the Meadowbank Station and educational precinct. The at-grade access is user-friendly for wheelchair and pram users reducing the longer detours previously required.

Work included cutting back the rock face under the Angas Street bridge to allow the construction of a footpath connection between Bowden Street and See Street and a new pedestrian crossing on Constitution Road, near See Street.

Mayor Trenton Brown said that while the project had been delayed due to engineering challenges, difficulty sourcing a specialist contractor who could undertake the work, and prolonged wet weather, he was pleased Council had been able to deliver the vital upgrades to Constitution Road for the community and thanked everyone for their patience.

Monthly updates will be provided on the project page once the next stage of the project commences.
