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 along 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 signals or ride with the traffic and will remain in place until 2015

To help road users navigate the new route a new video has been created which highlights important destinations such as the Mount Hospital and freeway entry points.
