Monday morning 25 September 2017, new mechanical components for the Reef HQ Aquarium gantry crane including the enormous steel beam that the crane travels on will arrive at Reef HQ Aquarium. The operation will start at 6am and will involve the closure of part of Flinders street along to the Aquarium. There will be a large crane parked outside the Aquarium to lift off the old beam and crane motor and put the new one in place. This may interfere with access to GBRMPA, Reef HQ Aquarium and Kelleher Place. We hope the entire operation will be completed by 10:30am.   We are mindful that there may be short traffic delays along Flinders Street and we hope this delay will be minimal.
