$1.5 million construction begins on Perth City Deal, creating local jobs.

Construction on the causeway pedestrian and cyclist bridges project has started.

The $100 million project, which features two cable-stayed bridges, providing a 6-metre-wide shared path linking Victoria Park foreshore at McCallum Park with Heirisson Island and Perth’s CBD at Point Fraser is part of the Perth City Deal.

Civmec Construction and Engineering Pty Ltd, Seymour Whyte Constructions Pty Ltd, WSP Australia Pty Ltd and Main Roads, which comprises the Causeway Link Alliance is expected to complete the project which aims to provide improvement to safety, connectivity and amenity for commuters and tourists.

Western Australia Transport Minister Rita Saffioti mentioned that the upgrade would provide the community and tourists better connectivity and hopefully encourage more people to visit the CBD. Saffioti states that by building infrastructures that connects communities like the causeway pedestrian and cyclists bridges, she hopes to make walking and riding safe and convenient. As well as to encourage more people to utilize different modes of transport.

The project site holds strong cultural significance to First Nations peoples, and in consultation with the project’s Matagarup Elders Group, interpretive architectural and landscape design has been incorporated to showcase Whadjuk Noongar culture and heritage.

The project which is funded by the Federal Government and WA Government, is expected to be completed in late 2024.
