There will be plenty of activity around the Pound Street, Grafton precinct during the Queen’s Birthday weekend, due to the replacement of the rail bridge over Pound Street.
In a media release on May 21, Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis said that ‘the trusses for this bridge were already in Grafton awaiting installation over the Queen’s Birthday weekend from Saturday 8 to Monday June 10’.
“The project team will be working for 72 hours straight to remove the current rail bridge and replace it with a 42-metre steel truss bridge,” Mr Gulaptis said.
“This will see the clearance height over Pound Street increased to 5.3 metres and will allow for Pound Street to be upgraded, becoming the approach road to the new bridge,” he said.
