Progress at The Suter and Road Works in Bridge Street

The Suter staff are getting ready to move back to the original home of the gallery beside the Queen’s Gardens. It is an exciting time for everyone involved in the redevelopment and the fruition of many years of hard work, planning, designing and building a new home for the region’s treasured works of art. The Suter will be officially opened in October but we were able to join other invited supporters of the Suter redevelopment for a sneak peek at the finished space. Check out the photo’s below.

One final major disruption is road works that are currently underway and expected to last about another 4-5 weeks. Council contractors have been working very efficiently rebuilding the kerb and channel on the Suter side of the road, and will soon start work on resurfacing the footpath on both sides and finally resurfacing the road between Harley St and the bridge.

At the moment there is no roadside parking along much of Bridge Street but our clients will be still be able to access our on-site parking. There may be a day or two where this is even more restricted as the contractors work directly at our entrance but we will let you know when that is likely to be.
