New $100 million Swan River Pedestrian and Cycling Bridge

-

Perth, WA

New designs have been revealed for a $100 million Swan River Pedestrian and Cycling Causeway Bridge linking the Perth CBD with Victoria Park.

The WA Government last week announced the contractors chosen to construct the six-metre-wide bridge, which will be built close to an existing Causeway Bridge over the Swan River.

WA Transport and Planning Minister Rita Saffioti said the new structure would provide a separate path for active transport, offering a safer and easier route for the 2,000 cyclists and 1,500 pedestrians who currently use the causeway daily.

The Federal and WA Government last month announced they would contribute an extra $25 million each to the project, with the City of Perth also contributing to the costs.

Construction is expected to begin this year.

The bridge is part of a $1.69 billion project dubbed Perth City Deal, which includes:

  • a CBD Transport Plan to improve active and public transport accessibility and safety
  • developing an inner-city campus of Edith Cowan University and expanding Curtin University
  • rejuvenating the Perth Cultural Centre, Perth Concert Hall and the WACA sporting complex.
  • a new WACA aquatic centre
  • preliminary design work for a Perth Aboriginal Cultural Centre
