New stairs for Nulty Way
Words by Jodie Powell

A popular staircase and path connecting Plucks Rd and Cobbity Crescent at Arana Hills will be replaced.

Moreton Bay Regional Council has awarded the $401,000 tender to Auzcon IP Pty Ltd, with construction scheduled to start in October.

An officers’ report to last week’s Moreton Bay Regional Council meeting says the existing stairs and path through Nulty Way Park are “showing signs of significant failures” and the project will improve access and safety for pedestrians.

Improved access

As part of the project, the existing stairs will be removed and replaced with 75m of pedestrian stairs, landings and handrails and a new foothpath will be built at the top and bottom of the stairs.

A short retaining wall will also be built at the top of the stairs.

“The objective of the project is to improve pedestrian access and return the path to a desired level of service,” the report says.

The work is expected to take eight weeks, including an allowance for wet weather.
