What's happening

A total of $38 million has been allocated in the 2024-25 State Budget to build a new bridge along the same alignment as the current bridge on Claremont Crescent.

Proposed alignment

The new bridge will increase safety, reduce ongoing maintenance costs and prevent closures that inconvenience commuters.

A comprehensive evaluation of options for Congdon Street Bridge found replacing the bridge was the best option for the community.

The three-year project involves construction of a new and improved structure, with increased clearance, and an improved shared path running parallel with the Perth-Fremantle train line.

During the project’s construction, a temporary bridge will be built west of the existing bridge to maintain connectivity in the community.  Parking within the Swanbourne shopping precinct will also be preserved, as will the existing Norfolk Pine trees on Claremont Crescent and the date palms on Railway Street.
