In preparation for constructing the Causeway Pedestrian and Cyclist Bridges Project, works are being undertaken at Point Fraser to relocate a key water pipeline which is over 100 years old. These works commenced in May and are expected to be completed by October 2023.
Path detours – Stage 3 and Stage 4
Path detours will be in place during these works to safely direct path users around the work area. The detours will be established in stages over approximately six weeks in order to enable works at different locations. Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the detours are now complete. Please always proceed with caution and adhere to signage throughout the area. We thank you for your patience and apologise in advance for any inconvenience.
Access to On the Point businesses, About Bike Hire, the CPP car park and the underpass to East Perth will be maintained.
Stage 3: The shared path adjacent to the work site will be closed, with paths remaining open along Riverside Drive and the foreshore. This will allow for construction of the temporary shared path and erection of the scaffold ramp along the foreshore.
Approximate duration: Three weeks, starting Friday 28 July 2023.
Stage 4: The shared path along Riverside Drive will be closed, and path users will be detoured around the work site via the temporary shared path and scaffold ramp along the foreshore. This will allow for the water pipe relocation.
Approximate duration: Three months, starting approximately Mid-August 2023.
Vegetation impactsA small amount of vegetation has been removed to enable access for machinery to conduct these works. As the project progresses, further removal of vegetation will be necessary to facilitate the construction of the bridges’ abutments on Point Fraser. Vegetation removed will be replaced or repurposed within the project site where possible.
