We're building a new pedestrian and cyclist bridge to connect Victoria Park foreshore to Heirisson Island and Perth CBD.
Two consortia have been shortlisted and invited to submit detailed proposals for the design and construction of Causeway Pedestrian and Cyclist Bridge. A consortia is where multiple contractors come together with their resources and expertise to deliver a project.
The shortlisted consortia are made up of the following:
- Civmec SWC WSP (Civmec, Seymour Whyte, WSP); and
- Matagarup Heirisson Alliance (Decmil, Arup, SRG).
An Alliance contract is planned to be awarded later this year.
The iconic new bridge is anticipated to be six metres wide and will have dedicated pedestrian and cyclist lanes. This will provide safer access for more than 1,400 cyclists and 1,900 pedestrians who currently use the existing Causeway bridges daily.
Construction is expected to start in mid-2022 and finish by mid-2024.
