Harbour Esplanade redevelopment update

01 Mar 2011

VicUrban says its Harbour Esplanade redevelopment is on schedule for completion by mid-2011, with most of the major infrastructure works expected to be completed by next month.

By the end this month, the first of the Norfolk Island pine trees will be planted along Harbour Esplanade (weather permitting).

During March and April the final layer of asphalt will be installed between Bourke and LaTrobe streets, including the Bourke and LaTrobe street intersections. Once the asphalting works are complete, traffic sensors will be placed in each lane in each direction between Bourke and

Dudley streets to provide more sophisticated and responsive traffic light sequencing.

Lane closures will be required to finalise the asphalting works, with the majority to be conducted at night to minimise disruption.

VicUrban is working with its contractors and local businesses to finalise the asphalting schedule. Once the dates are confirmed it will provide further information. 

VicUrban also says works are well underway to create a new pedestrian path on the eastern footpath along the stadium side between Bourke and LaTrobe streets, with the final layer of asphalt scheduled to be laid in early March. Following these works, the final layer of asphalt will be laid on the western footpath, on the harbour side between Bourke St and Docklands Drive.

By mid-2011 the Capital City Bicycle Trail between Bourke St and Docklands Drive will be realigned, creating a dedicated path separate from a pedestrian footpath.
