Today at Barangaroo a large green crane barge (known as BPL1) removed the northern cornerstone (caisson) from the old wharf. The removal of this caisson now gives way to the new naturalistic headland and sandstone foreshore.
The caissons were the concrete edge of the former container port and have been cut underwater by a specialised wire cutting process and then removed by the crane barge. Once removed, the concrete caissons have been crushed and the materials are being used to help build the park.
The six hectare waterfront park will be a stunning addition for residents and visitors to Sydney. Once complete, the park and foreshore will feature expansive views as well as bush walks, picnic areas, walking paths and tidal pools.
