Upcoming Works at Turtle Bend
As part of the Teesdale Turtle Bend Reserve Upgrade, Council will be installing a new pedestrian bridge at the site.
In preparation for the installation of the new bridge, the existing bridge and a major limb on one of the Aleppo Pine trees on the north side of the bridge will be removed due to construction safety issues. These works will begin today.
While the demolition and construction works are underway, there will be no direct pedestrian connection between the site’s two play spaces. Construction works are expected to be completed by the end of June.
The new wider bridge will allow for greater pedestrian traffic in both directions and will feature an artistic serpent design. The new bridge is a major component of the Teesdale Turtle Bend Reserve Upgrade, which also included a power upgrade to the site, installation of a new public toilet block including a disabled toilet and baby change facilities, a new septic system, additional play space elements and seating, new multi-sport space including half court for netball and basketball, improved fencing and sealing of the parking area.
The Teesdale Turtle Bend Reserve Upgrade is a partnership project, with funding from the Federal Government, Global Power Generation the proponents of the Berrybank Wind Farm, and Council.
