Challenging corrosion repairs project wraps up
It closed bridges, scaled walls, halted traffic and faced the worst that Sydney’s humid summer weather could throw at it, but finally the five-month corrosion repairs project has been successfully completed (applause!).
Project staff weren’t the only ones to breathe a sigh of relief when the project wrapped up; the UTS community who have very patiently put up with access changes and noise disruptions were no doubt also happy to see the final scaffolding and hoardings disappear.
The newly repaired Harris St footbridge
But while corrosion repairs will never generate the excitement that surrounds construction of new facilities, it is hard to over-emphasise the importance of this project – for safety, compliance and access reasons.
In a nutshell:
- The Harris St footbridge is now ready for another 20 years of pedestrian traffic.
- Shop awnings on the Broadway/Harris St Corner have been restored/replaced.
- The Building 3 turret has been repaired.
- The Building 6 façade is in great order.
Sincere thanks to everyone for bearing with us so that this project could be completed.
