Please note that Boroondara Councils work planned to begin in late August 2022 is the northern land bridge section.

Boroondara Council: Walmer Street Bridge Construction: We are replacing the northern land bridge section of the Walmer Street Bridge in Kew.

Bridge closure and construction is about 8 months, pending weather conditions

If you’re curious what happened to getting a new bridge in situ, someone decided to make a application for the old bridge to be heritage listed, although Boroondara Council have mentioned advocating for another river crossing in the area in their bicycle strategy. Given that calls for a entire bridge replacement stretch back to the 1990s its anyone’s guess when that will eventuate.

If you are concerned about Walmer Street Bridge works coinciding with Gipps Street ramp works, it appears the latter is returning to the tender stage
