Community meeting / Information evening about Ronald Street footbridge replacement

Moreland Council conducted a two-hour public meeting facilitated by the design consultants to discuss design options of the bridge replacement or boardwalk alternative.

Concerned residents listened to the feasibility study that the design consultants Pitt & Sherry have put together.

Suggestions are to replace the bridge either in the existing location or elsewhere along the creek in accordance with the 1-in-10 year flood requirement as dictated by Melbourne Water. The second option is to build a boardwalk along the west side of the creek, up the hill, to connect with Kodak bridge.

No definite plans have yet been tabled as Council are still in discussion with the consultants. 

If you have any suggestions, ideas or knowledge of the creek you wish to share with the consultants, please contact Chris Morton at Pitt & Sherry cmorton@pittsh.com.au.

Community meeting held Tuesday 12 December, 2017 at the Newlands Senior Citizens Centre to discuss designs and options for the Ronald Street bridge replacement.

Sign the petition to re-establish the Ronald Street footbridge!

Visit our friends at The Elizabeth Cafe in Coburg North for a fabulous coffee and sign the petition to have the Ronald Street Footbridge erected in 2017.

The petition is to show the Moreland City Council that there is a high demand and need to have the Ronald Street Footbridge re-established within the 2017 Calendar year. It is a highly utilised bridge over Edgars Creek and without it, it greatly affects day-to-day life for local businesses and the general public wishing to the use the park.
