Neumann Contractors have just finished installation of the last canopy structure for the Byron Bay Bus Interchange.
The Byron Bay Interchange Upgrade will provide an interchange precinct that is accessible to those with a disability, limited mobility, parents/carers with prams and customers with luggage. The bus shelter incorporates local heritage through utilisation of the old town water tank as a site feature.
Overall, the steel canopy structures consisted of 74 tonne of complex fabricated steel columns, rafters and beams.
The site construction team required five weeks to fully construct three structures.
Well done to the workshop and site team and we look forward to seeing the precinct opening in early 2021.
The Byron Bay Interchange was delivered as part of the Transport Access Program, a NSW Government initiative to provide a better experience for public transport customers by delivering accessible, modern, secure and integrated transport infrastructure across the state.
