Kwinana Freeway Principal Shared Path (PSP)
March to June

We are undertaking a major upgrade of the Principal Shared Path (PSP) adjacent to the Kwinana Freeway, between the Narrows Bridge and the Thelma Street footbridge.

We have scheduled this project to take advantage of low tides, minimising the possibility of rain delays and ensuring the work can be completed as quickly and safely as possible.

Stage 1 is expected to to be completed in mid-May and will include:

  • Widening and reconstruction works from the southern end of the worksite (south of Thelma Street) to north of the Hardy Street footbridge
  • A detour in place from Preston Street footbridge to the Narrows Bridge, maintaining access to the foreshore and jetty at Preston Street during daylight hours
  • Overnight closures (8.00 pm to 5.00 am) of the PSP from Cale Street to Preston Street during the first week

Stage 2 is expected to take a further four weeks and will include:

  • Works on the final and more complicated section between Hardy Street and the Narrows Bridge
  • River wall works
  • A detour in place from Hardy Street through to the Narrows Bridge.

Cyclists aged 12 years or older are reminded that they are not to use the footpaths on Mill Point Road north of Judd Street, but should continue to use the recommended detour or other local roads.

Market Street Principal Shared Path (PSP)
Market Street to Wellington Street

The shared path that travels behind Perth Arena is currently closed for maintenance between Market Street and Wellington Street.  This closure will be in place until further notice whilst Arena conduct building maintenance .  Cyclists and Pedestrians can detour via Market Street on to Wellington Street

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 this afternoon (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
