Building Fremantle’s new traffic bridge to improve journeys for all road and river users.

Swan River Crossings <em>Fremantle</em>

New bridge for Fremantle

The Fremantle Traffic Bridge was opened in 1939 as a temporary structure (the fourth built at this site) and has served its function well. The bridge has been deteriorating over several years, and despite extensive strengthening and maintenance works, it needs to be replaced. The new bridge will be built on the existing alignment and will be the fifth bridge in this location.

What’s happening

In response to community and key stakeholder feedback to the concept released in 2022, significant investigations and technical assessments have been progressed and a new concept has been developed.

A Development Application (DA) to progress this new approach has been submitted by Main Roads to the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage (DPLH) who will conduct an independent public consultation period.
