What’s happening

Planning and development continues on the Swan River Crossings Project, one of Fremantle’s most significant infrastructure projects, which will see the replacement of the Fremantle Traffic Bridge and construction of a rail bridge across the Swan River.

The alignment of the new crossings has now been confirmed, with construction of two new bridges (one road and one passenger rail) being built between the existing Fremantle Traffic Bridge and the existing rail bridge.

Our focus is now on developing the new bridge design, incorporating transport needs, urban design, heritage and future planning. 

Investigation into water, services, geotechnical conditions and road pavement will help inform the design development. These investigations are expected to be completed mid-2022.
