Removing the bridge to the Michael Fowler Centre
The process of removing the bridge between Te Whare Whakarauiki and the Michael Fowler Centre will be carried out between 22 January and 8 February, subject to weather conditions.
All activities will be carried out within the closed construction site so there is not expected to be any disruption to the nearby parking or traffic flow.
The bridge was added to the Michael Fowler Centre in the 1990s. As the bridge is not being used and it doesn’t work with the base isolation being installed, it is being removed.
On 17 and 18 September 2020 we installed a crane in the centre of the Town Hall.
The crane will be in place until early 2022 to help carry out parts of the strengthening work.
Due to the height of the crane, we removed part of the roof, which will be covered and repaired once the crane is removed.
