Work is expected to begin in late August to replace the Harnett Park footbridge which was partially destroyed when a tree fell in a storm in December.
Following the appointment of a contractor to oversee the project, full replacement of the footbridge was deemed necessary with extended lead times in the supply of materials delaying the start of the project from last month.
The footbridge has been designed to complement the natural environment.
North Sydney and Mosman council staff have worked together to replace the bridge which spans the two council areas with construction expected to take about a month, weather permitting.
The footbridge connects Mosman to the Cremorne Reserve, a popular walking spot for locals and visitors.
Mosman Art Prize
Artists wishing to join the ranks of Mosman Art Prize luminaries have until 4 August to brush up their entries for the 2023 competition.
Entries can be submitted online following the success of last year’s digital approach which enabled artists from beyond the Sydney region to more easily enter.
The acquisitive award, which has a major prize of $50,000 on offer, has been won by scores of renowned artists with winning works over the years providing Mosman with a seminal collection of modern and contemporary Australian art, reflecting developments in Australian art practice.
The annual exhibition for the 2023 finalists will take place from 23 September until 29 October at Mosman Art Gallery.
Mosman Art Prize is back again for 2023 and entries are now open.
Next month’s online sustainability workshops, provided through Mosman Council’s partnership with six leading experts, will focus on reusing and reducing food waste, avoiding wastage with nappies and sanitary items and electric vehicles.
Information will be available through video workshops, interactive events, and bespoke resources with free live video sessions, including question and answer sessions, running until September.
All video workshop sessions are recorded and can be accessed for up to 12 months.
