Brookvale Pedestrian Bridge

The Brookvale pedestrian bridge work is well underway, with the pre-constructed bridge scheduled for delivery and installation between Wednesday 25 September to Saturday 28 September.

Brookvale is a busy public transport interchange, retail and health precinct regularly used by bus customers, pedestrians and cyclists, as well as general traffic. Once installed, the bridge will span Pittwater Road from the side of the Brookvale Community Health Centre (BCHC) across to Westfield Warringah Mall, improving traffic flow and providing safer accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists.

Bridge construction works commenced in June 2019 and will continue over the coming months, with expected opening to the public late 2019.

The following works will be completed as part of the pedestrian bridge installation:

• removal of the existing ‘at-grade’ signalised pedestrian crossing across Pittwater Road at William Street

• installation of two ‘power sliding gates’ to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists by preventing access to cross at the traffic signals

• a new lift dedicated to the pedestrian bridge within the BCHC

• a new lift and stairwell on the western side of Pittwater Road

• an additional shelter northbound to improve existing coverage at the outbound bus stops.

Road closures and traffic changes in Brookvale and North Manly

Between Wednesday 25 September and Sunday 29 September, the new pedestrian bridge will be transported, stored and installed on Pittwater Road Brookvale.

While completing these works, there will be some delays to traffic and changes to local bus stop services. Allow more travel time when travelling through the area.
