Shared pathProject type

Extension of the Fremantle Railway Principal Shared Path (PSP), connecting North Fremantle train station to and across the Swan River, was to be delivered as part of the Swan River Crossings project.
Between North Fremantle station and the river, the PSP was to be constructed within the rail reserve, requiring both rail and path works to be coordinated. However, with the omission of the rail bridge from the project, the PSP construction has been deferred (between North Fremantle station and the river).
The revised concept for the Swan River Crossings project will include wider and safer paths on each side of the new traffic bridge (up to four metres wide) over the river. On the western side, this path will form part of the PSP between Perth and Fremantle.
The Department of Transport is exploring alternative options, with support from Main Roads, for a safer crossing at Tydeman Road, to improve connectivity for people of all ages and abilities walking, wheeling and riding between North Fremantle station and the Swan River.
