Ava bridge replacement project
The bridge at the southern end of Ava Station is closed due to earthquake damage. The station can be only accessed via the northern pedestrian bridge which only has stairs.
Ava station is not accessible for users in wheelchairs or prams. Woburn Station is fully accessible.
Resolving this issue is complex and is taking longer than we first anticipated but please be assured we are committed to repairing the bridge as soon as practicable.
Works will commence in late October 2017 and the new bridge will be open to the public in early June 2018. We appreciate this is a long time to be without the use of this bridge so thank you for your patience.
The design and methodology for construction has now been completed. Note due to safety requirements bridge construction will undertaken largely off site and installed during rail shut downs.
