Dawes Point Reinstatement
As the principal contractor for Roads and Maritime Services, Simpson Landscapes & Consultants was appointed to undertake the restoration and reinstatement of Dawes Point Park at Lower Fort Street beneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Over the years the turf and underlying soil of this iconic city park had suffered considerable damage. Heavily compacted due to its use as a site compound for the painting of the Harbour Bridge, Dawes Point was no longer the visitor friendly green space it once was. The area was unsuitable for regrowth without major renovation, and the irrigation system required replacement.
In consultation with Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, Simpson Landscapes commenced removal of the existing turf and soil and other restoration works in order to reinstate the formal parkland to its former glory.
