The Western Australian Government has announced that a new bicycle and pedestrian connection will be built across the Swan River in Perth. We made the initial design for this, comprising of two iconic cable-stayed bridges. The new connection will gravely improve traffic flow and allows cyclists and pedestrians to safely cross the Swan River. Read more about it on our project page.
The Western Australia Department of Transport has recently appointed us designated architect for the feasibility study of a new bicycle and pedestrian bridge across the Swan River in Perth. The existing Causeway Bridge will in future altered to allow more traffic as well as public transport, leaving no room for cyclists and pedestrians. Cyclists and pedestrians will however have to be able to cross the river and Heirisson Island once the Causeway bridge has been adapted. The feasibility study will therefore focus on building a new bicycle and pedestrian bridge in the vicinity of the existing Causeway bridge.
Next week two of our senior designers will be heading off to Perth for the kick-off week. Engineering office WSP is our Australian partner in this project.
