For 5 years the Burton Street Cutler Footway in Darlinghurst has been closed due to disrepair. Well, good news. The significant repair work is almost completed! I was able to to inspect the improvements bring made to the viaduct with Assistant Minister Andrew Gee MP and Dave Sharma MP and can report the works are on track to be finished in December 2019.
The footway viaduct is an overhead route connecting Macdonald Street, Paddington and West Street / Burton Street, Darlinghurst. It passes over Boundary Street and Barcom Avenue.
New works include a wider footway, safety barriers, lighting and signs of the viaduct arches, a new road deck and drainage.
The work is a great collaboration between the Federal Government and the City of Sydney.
