Causeway Cyclist & Pedestrian Bridge
Victoria Park to Perth CBD
The existing Causeway was constructed in 1952 and comprises two bridges that provide two lanes in each direction, with a narrow two metre wide path along its western side.
The path has long been recognised as a very busy thoroughfare for pedestrians and cyclists, which can become uncomfortable and unsafe. On average, more than 1,400 cyclists and 1,900 pedestrians use the current path each day.
The new bridge is anticipated to be six metres wide, with dedicated pedestrian and cyclist lanes. It will connect Victoria Park foreshore with Heirisson Island and Perth’s CBD.
Design elements will be considered during the planning and will include tributes to prominent Aboriginal people from the area.
