Two bridges will be constructed downstream of the heritage-listed Causeway Bridge, providing improved access across the Swan River for pedestrians and cyclists.
The cable-stayed bridges will provide a six-metre wide shared path and will create a safer connection for people walking and riding from the Perth CBD to Victoria Park and beyond.
Construction of the bridges will commence in the Derbal Yerrigan (Swan River) from late-2023.
Currently more than 1,400 cyclists and 1,900 pedestrians use the two-metre wide Causeway path each day.
Site establishment and ground improvement works have commenced at McCallum Park, Heirisson Island and Point Fraser.
The design of the bridges showcases Aboriginal heritage and draws inspiration from the stories of Fanny Balbuk and Yagan, two significant indigenous figures associated with Heirisson Island.
