Repairs were carried out from the foreshore of Sydney Harbour, and were made more difficult by the highly exposed and tidal conditions. Metrocorp applied methodologies to protect the sensitive environment, preserve the heritage listed seawall and ensure safe work practices were followed.
A diversion of the aqueduct was implemented and maintained for the duration of the works. This isn’t so unusual perhaps, but a wave and shark net being installed for protection of the work crew certainly was. In addition, access restrictions from the street meant equipment and materials were manoeuvred to and from the work zone daily by barge.
