Perth’s new Causeway bridges reflect Whadjuk Noongar culture

The Causeway Link Alliance – which includes RA Members WSP, Seymour Whyte and Main Roads WA – will design and construct Perth’s iconic new Causeway cycle and pedestrian bridges.

The works will incorporate the delivery of two cable-stayed bridges, including a 6 metre wide shared path linking Victoria Park foreshore, Heirisson Island and Perth’s CBD at Point Fraser.

Construction work on the new bridges will begin this year, with completion expected in 2024. The design of the new active transport infrastructure will draw heavily on the rich Aboriginal history and culture of the area, and will improve safety for the estimated 1,400 cyclists and 1,900 pedestrians who use the existing path on the Causeway Bridge each day.

Shereen Mikhail, WSP’s Project Director said, “We are very excited to be part of the team building this significant project with such an innovative design that reflects and embeds the Whadjuk Noongar culture.

“These are WSP’s first cable-stayed bridges in WA, and these society-shaping projects play a key role in helping us benefit communities both today and for years to come.”
