Construction Update – February 2020
Earlier this month, the project achieved a major milestone with the successful installation of eight bridge beams over Reid Highway. Read our latest Construction Update for more details about this lift, as well as an update on the progress of our works at the intersection of Reid Highway and West Swan Road and our plans to revegetate the site upon completion.
Beam Installation Complete
The new bridge over Reid Highway at Arthur Street progressing well. The installation of four concrete beams to complete the Arthur Street Bridge span was completed overnight on Thursday 13 February, taking only one night to complete. The largest of the precast concrete beams are 35 metres long and weigh more than 110 tonnes each.
Update to PSP detour route
To ensure the safety of cyclists while we construct the Reid Highway Dual Carriageway Project, Reid Highway is closed to cyclists between Altone Road and West Swan Road until June 2020. As of 28 January 2020, the detour route between Lord Street/Drumpellier Drive and West Swan Road will change. This change is due to works taking place on the roundabout at the intersection of Arthur Street and Grandis Road/Victoria Road in Dayton.

Arthur Street Roundabout Closure

The closure is required to enable removal and reconstruction of the roundabout to tie in with the new Arthur Street bridge and relocation of the existing underground sewer main.
