Royal Far West’s new Centre for Child Health and Learning in Manly is on schedule for completion late in 2018. This purpose-built Centre will provide much-needed support for children and families in rural and remote communities across Australia.

Construction Update

  • We reached a major milestone on Tuesday 14 November with the installation of the tower crane and we thank you, our local community, for your cooperation and patience during this process.

  • Preparation of basement slabs is underway with a target to pour the first section of the basement slab around the end of November / early December.

  • Close to 200 tonne of steel reinforcement will be tied into the basement slabs with larger semi-trailer trucks required to deliver this.

  • Upcoming milestones are the concrete pours for basement slabs and associated pits/footings.

Construction work that may be apparent to the local community

  • Currently there is an increased number of trucks and plant movements active on Wentworth Street due to the bulk excavation and placement of concrete, with associated footpath closures required this week for a concrete pour.

  • Moving forward, daily deliveries of materials will be lifted out of the work zone by the on-site tower crane with traffic slowed or stopped accordingly to safely coordinate this process. Pedestrian safety will be ensured through the overhead engineered B-class hoarding and footpath closures as required also.

We thank the local community for its strong engagement, interest and support in this important project for Royal Far West and for Manly.

All works outside the site boundary are coordinated and approved in advance by the Northern Beaches Council, with Traffic Control Plans implemented by a crew of experienced Traffic Controllers.
