Horseshoe Bridge Upgrade

Our work on the Horseshoe Bridge is now complete with the bridge opening to two-way traffic in July 2010.

The project involved:

  • removing existing brick paving and old concrete overlay (deck);
  • applying corrosion inhibitor to steel components;
  • constructing a new reinforced concrete overlay;
  • installing a waterproof membrane;
  • constructing new asphalt traffic lanes in lieu of brick paving;
  • reinstatement of wider footpaths;
  • stone kerbing, drainage connections and new stainless steel bollards in lieu of guard railing.

Benefits include improved access and safety for pedestrians and motorists using the bridge and extended the life of the bridge and minimised ongoing maintenance requirements.

We worked with the City of Perth in developing the project to form part of the City's greater plan to improve traffic flow into and out of the City.
