Planning and development continues on the Swan River Crossings Project, which will see the replacement of the Fremantle Traffic Bridge across the Swan River and construction of a new rail bridge.

This project is one of the most complex and challenging projects ever undertaken by our team, involving road, passenger and freight rail, maritime, pedestrians and cyclists, heritage and environmental considerations. Once completed, the Swan River Crossings will consist of:
  • a new traffic bridge
  • a new rail bridge
  • separated pedestrian and cyclist facilities

The project aims to deliver improved safety for road users, modern standard pedestrian and cycling facilities, increased rail efficiencies and improved river navigation whilst acknowledging the history of this place as a crossing point of the Swan River.
