Overview

The old timber bridge was built 99 years ago and had a 5-tonne load limit. Replacing it with a modern concrete and steel structure will ensure it is suitable for all standard vehicles and provide upgraded shared path facilities. It will optimise the road network for local traffic access and pedestrian and cyclist facilities into the future.

Work included: 

  • Providing two 3.5 metre lanes, two 1.2 metre shoulder lanes, and pedestrian and cyclist paths on both sides.
  • Improved sight distances and intersection layout at Hamilton Road and Railway Parade. 
  • Upgraded lighting, signage and drainage.

Project update

Bridge open to traffic

The new bridge is now open to traffic, connecting the new Subi East Precinct and Bob Hawke College.

Some project completion works will continue on-site through September 2019.

Closures

The adjacent shared path will remain closed until late-September for public safety. Path users will be directed away from the existing railway reserve path to a detour using Subiaco Road and White Place returning to the path at Loftus Street.
