Hamilton Street Bridge Replacement

We will be replacing the aging Hamilton Street Bridge over the railway line in Subiaco with a new steel and concrete structure.

The old timber bridge was built 99 years ago and has a 5-tonne load limit. Replacing it with a modern 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.

Latest news

A tender was advertised to industry on Friday 28 September for the project. Interested contractors have until 2 November to prepare proposals and submit them for consideration.

Following the tender evaluation, a contract will be awarded late in 2018, with project completion expected in mid-2019.

Project scope

Replace the existing bridge with a concrete and steel structure that is wider, comprising two 3.5 metre traffic lanes, two 1.2 metre shoulder lanes, and 3 metre shared paths on both sides.

Improve sight distances and intersection layout at Hamilton Road and Railway Parade.

Upgrade lighting, signage and drainage.

During construction local traffic access will need to be managed as the existing bridge will be closed.
