The Macquarie Point Development Corporation is calling for tenders to construct the first of two pedestrian linkages to provide access between the Macquarie Point site and the Hobart Cenotaph.
Chief Executive Officer, Mary Massina, said it will be the first time a formal link to both key areas will be built.
“Once constructed, this linkage will provide a safe and reliable access point from the site to the Hobart Cenotaph, replacing the informal track currently used by the community.
“Its development will enhance the connection between the two sites and provide a valuable link to increase public access.”
The works will include excavation, balustrading, lighting, and the construction new concrete stairs.
Work will also be done on carving out the embankment to improve visibility for cyclists using the pedestrian path below.
“The Corporation invites suitably qualified civil construction firms to apply for what will be a significant construction that will support the sites access for generations to come.”
Tender applications close on Wednesday 17 March 2021.
