Down they come: Crown Street Mall’s trademark money bars are scheduled for dismantling this weekend.

THE remainder of the Crown Street Mall’s trademark ‘monkey bars’  will be removed this weekend, weather permitting.

Following the removal of the steel arches contractors will begin work on the construction of the mall in the north end of Church Street. This work will be conducted in two shifts, the first will be during daylight hours from 7am – 3.30pm and the second starting at 3.30pm until 12 midnight.

Hoarding will be placed around the worksite to ensure public safety. The city centre continues to be open for business.

Work will also begin this week on the removal and replacement of an ageing Sydney Water main in the Crown Street Mall (Keira Street end). Hoarding will also be placed around this worksite.
