According to the planners at City Projects Office, Since the construction of the bikeway, Kedron Brook has experienced significant erosion along the riverbank due to tidal influences which has widened the width of the waterway. This widening is impacting the Jim Soorley Bikeway infrastructure. As a result, several components of the bikeway pose a safety risk to bikeway users as they are at risk of failure. The works form part of Council’s ongoing initiative to undertake maintenance and remediation works on Council’s public infrastructure.”
