The following news is probably of great interest to many:

January 9: City of Yarra -The Walmer Street footbridge has reopened 
after a two day closure due.

Officers from the City of Boroondara immediately closed the river 
crossing on Monday 7 January after they were alerted to a significant 
crack in a support on the Kew side of the footbridge.

Temporary supports were installed by the City of Boroondarra on 
Wednesday afternoon to stabilise the bridge, allowing it to reopen to 
pedestrians and cyclists.

The crack on the section of the bridge above the Kew embankment had 
caused the deck of the bridge to drop to one side.

The City of Boroondara will manage the long-term repair work needed to 
fix the crack.

For further updates on this project, visit Boroondara's website.


Update: 9 January
Work started this morning installing supports around the cracked section 
of the bridge. The bridge was reopened in the afternoon.
