Precinct News
21 February 2020


Dear Residents, 
You may have previously received a notification informing you that out of hours work was required for the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct Project on 20 and 21 February 2020. This work has been deferred and will now be carried out on Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 February 2020, weather permitting.
The works will still be carried out Richard Crookes Constructions and Waeger Constructions and will involve the setup of a barge-mounted crane between Pier 2/3 and Wharf 4/5 to then hoist lift equipment into Wharf 4/5. These works will commence at 5 am each day and are expected to take approximately an hour.
These works need to be completed out of hours due to safety reasons as there will be minimal large vessel movements in the harbour during this time, minimising wash on the barge crane.
Noise generated from this work is expected to be minimal. All efforts will be undertaken by Richard Crookes Constructions and its subcontractors to ensure that noise and all impacts of this operation will be kept to a minimum.
Attached is the notification that was letterbox dropped yesterday.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via the project phone line and email below. We apologise for any inconvenience caused from the delay to these works. Thank you for your patience and ongoing cooperation during this essential work.
Warm regards
On behalf of the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct Redevelopment project team

Alex has asked to circulate a copy of his letter to the minister about the recently announced feasibility study of shore to ship power arrangements (attached). He’s asked that the study not just consider technology and cost, but also health and environment impacts, and include all cruise ship terminals.
