Swan River Crossings, Fremantle

Fremantle’s new bridges - improving your journey on land and on water. Construction is due to start 2022.
Boat in the Swan River under two bridges

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

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

This will deliver improved road, rail, pedestrian and cycling paths, across the Swan River, while also increasing marine safety and navigational clearances for boats.

The project is now progressing into the development phase where design details will be progressed along with further investigations around the constructability, environmental assessments, scheduling, and detailed costing.
