Riverside Drive Diversion


The new Riverside Drive Diversion route is now in operation with all traffic permanently diverted via Barrack Street, The Esplanade and William Street.

From 24 February, cyclists and pedestrians will no longer have access to the existing shared path along the Swan River foreshore.  Cyclists and pedestrians will be diverted around the Elizabeth Quay project site and will be required to use:

  • The dual use path on the eastern side of Barrack Street
  • The dual use path on the southern side of The Esplanade
  • Temporary paths on William Street (that have been constructed inside the site boundary)

This route requires cyclists to cross at traffic signals or ride with the traffic, and will remain in place until 2015
