  • Maintaining existing footpath pedestrian movements whilst construction of retaining walls along Caroline Street, Paddington;
  • Restricted access for construction;
  • Impediment of construction due to the close proximity of existing houses;
  • Protecting heritage listed structures and
  • High specification product.
