Mandurah Traffic Bridge Replacement
The Old Mandurah Bridge on Old Coast Road in Halls Head has approached the end of its life. The two-lane structure is no longer sufficient to cater for local traffic due to the increased population growth in the area. Following work by a Community Reference Group (CRG) to develop a business case in 2013, the State Government and the City of Mandurah developed the project to replace the existing traffic bridge.
The State Government and City of Mandurah provided $51.8 million for the project.
A community event was held on 8 April 2018 along Mandurah’s eastern foreshore to celebrate the completion of the new Mandurah Traffic Bridge.
All four lanes of the new bridge were opened to traffic late last year. Since then the old bridge has been demolished and work has been done to complete paths, feature boardwalks under the new bridge and landscaping.
