Merrigal Street Bridge Nearing Completion

Saturday, 17 Jul 2021

Merrigal Street Bridge Nearing Completion Funding made available through the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program has provided for the construction of a pedestrian and cyclist bridge over the canal on the southern side of Merrigal Street between Noorla Street and Kywong Street.

Yoogali Engineering have completed manufacturing and placement of the bridge for Griffith City Council which will provide future connectivity between Westend Stadium and Jubilee Oval.  In the future this will allow the Sports Precincts to be linked together in a safe way.

Griffith Mayor, Councillor John Dal Broi said with the creation of the redevelopment of the Westend Sports Facility, it is expected that pedestrian and cyclist traffic will increase. “Connection from our sporting facilities will be increasingly important with the current works, and providing safe commuter access is paramount,” said Councillor Dal Broi

"This new structure is specifically targeted to provide access for pedestrians and cyclists on Merrigal Street crossing the canal safely."

The bridge has a 2.5m walkway and will separates pedestrians and cyclists from traffic.  The bridge should be open by September 2021, weather permitting, with the completion of bridge approaches and safety barriers in the next two months.
