Perth Bridges due for maintenance

To take advantage of the clear weather, we have some major roadworks scheduled which include the following bridges:

If you are travelling in any of these areas, plan ahead as delays may be experienced.

Claremont - Ashton Avenue Bridge

​Essential maintenance work have commenced on the Ashton Avenue Bridge, over the railway near Claremont Showgrounds.

Whilst most work will be undertaken below the bridge there will be some minor traffic management and road closures in place, along with a full, five-day closure of the bridge from approximately 5pm Sunday 29 January to 8pm Friday 3 February.

This closure coincides with the commencement of the school year (on 1 February).

Detours will be in place during the closure using Railway Road, Stubbs Terrace, Alfred Street and Graylands Road.
