Union Court Revitalisation: Summary of upcoming demolition works

Union - Culture hub

Fortnightly summary to GMs from Amanda Cox - Manager, Engagement, Communications & Marketing, Union Court Revitalisation.

The focus for the next two weeks includes continuing the demolition of Union Court and establishing the project building site. Post ANU Open Day (26 August), the demolition will enter a new phase and we expect noise impacts to increase with demolition of the Concessions building and Union Court bridge near Chifley Library.

Expected disruptions

  • Demolition related noise impacts
    Noise impacts are expected to increase with demolition of the Manning Clark Building, Concessions Building and Arts Centre.
  • One-way access on North Road
    North Road will remain a one-way road for the entire redevelopment. This will allow trucks to safely enter the Union Court site via Sullivans Creek Bridge.
