FORESHORE WALK REMAINS OPEN AS LEND LEASE STARTS WORKS 


7 July 2010 


Lend Lease has been granted authority to commence preliminary site works on Barangaroo

South today, by the Barangaroo Delivery Authority.


“The works are necessary for the progression of the existing approved concept plan to which

Lend Lease has development rights for Barangaroo South”, said John Tabart, CEO of the

Barangaroo Delivery Authority. 


“While the amendments to the approved concept plan are yet to be assessed and determined

through the public planning process, Lend Lease has been granted access to commence

preliminary site work related to the already approved site plan.


“During works in any part of the Barangaroo Precinct, it is our aim to ensure the foreshore walk

remains operational as much as possible although route changes to accommodate various

activities will obviously be necessary overtime. 


“After being shut off to the public for more than a century, since opening in December 2009 the

Barangaroo foreshore walk has welcomed thousands of joggers, pedestrians and cyclists and is

a popular activity for Sydneysiders.


“As Lend Lease commences activities on the site it may be necessary at times to divert the walk

as occurs when cruise ships are at the interim passenger terminal.


“The works commencing by Lend Lease include the erection of temporary fencing, geo technical

investigations, and preliminary site works in preparation for demolition of Wharf 8 and other

structures.


“On site works will be conducted during the hours of:



7am to 6pm Monday to Friday


8am to 1pm Saturdays


“These are not works associated with a future application to amend the concept plan for

additional height, gross floor area and the hotel on the public pier. These are subject to future

applications.


“The Barangaroo Delivery Authority will continue to ensure that the public have access to the

foreshore as much as possible during these and other forthcoming works. 


“While the works being undertaken may involve diversions at times, it is important for the

community to know that the foreshore walk will largely remain open during the transformation of

Barangaroo”, said Mr. Tabart.
