Pedestrian and cyclist access way closure at Walmer Street, Abbotsford
Thursday 16 January 2020
Pedestrian and cyclist access near Walmer Street, Abbotsford is restricted until late 2020.
Salta Properties (owners of the land) is required, as part of planning permission granted by the Minister of Planning, to undertake landscaping along the south side of the riverbank. This work is being undertaken by Icon.
The construction work is significant, and requires closure of the embankment from Walmer Street to Shamrock Street.
The track is closed from 13 January 2020 and will reopen in November 2020. The Walmer Street bridge remains open and cyclists and pedestrians can access the Capital City Trail via steps with bike gutters.
A ramp to the nearby switchback will also be temporarily closed in coming weeks, to enable demolition of the onsite display suite directly abutting it.
The ramp will be closed only when necessary and spotters will be present to allow anyone that cannot use the stairs to access the ramp.
At this stage, the ramp will be closed from 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday and on Saturday from 9am to 3pm on the following dates:
- 16 to 18 January
- 20 to 25 January, and
- 29 January to 5 February
