Pinjarra Road intersection
Early morning works to build concrete bridge-launch segments for the Mandurah Traffic Bridge are ongoing until mid-2017. The works are contained within the work-sites on the western and eastern foreshores.
The works need to begin at 4am as the concrete is temperature sensitive and must be poured in the cooler, early morning hours.
Works are also underway on the foreshore boardwalks and the eastern bridge abutment.
The Old Mandurah Bridge on Old Coast Road in Halls Head is approaching the end of its life, and the two-lane structure is no longer sufficient to cater for local traffic due to the increased population growth in the area. Following work by a Community Reference Group (CRG) to develop a business case in 2013, the State Government and the City of Mandurah developed the project to replace the existing traffic bridge.
A CRG established by the Minister for Transport in November 2012 ensured the community was well-represented during the redevelopment of the Old Mandurah Bridge. The CRG comprised members across local government, industry and community interest groups in addition to a team of specialist technical advisors. The group published a Strategic Business Case in July 2013 identifying those issues most important to the local community and proposing a preferred option.
Design and construction contractor, Georgiou Group Pty Ltd is working on the new bridge. Pouring and launching concrete segments for the new bridge are the current work focus.
Construction works commenced in May. The project is due for completion in late-2017.
The State Government and the City of Mandurah are providing $51.8 million for the project.

Consultation to identify community issues and preferences was undertaken in 2012/13, and the information collected was used to develop the project scope given to industry to base detailed bridge proposals on.
Information about the project will be distributed through a number of channels including fact sheets, the City of Mandurah’s and our website, and local newspapers as it becomes available.
