Will there be further opportunities for feedback?
Yes, to support the Congdon Street Bridge Replacement project, we will be developing an Urban Landscaping Design Framework with the Towns of Claremont and Cottesloe. This will ensure that the bridge replacement project complements the existing Swanbourne village.Members of the local business and residential community are invited to nominate for the Congdon Street Bridge Community Liaison Group to provide feedback into this framework.
To find out more about this group, and how to nominate, please visit the project website.
Why does the bridge need to be replaced?
Why can't we keep the old bridge?
What about the pine trees on Claremont Crescent?
Will traffic be able to use the old bridge whilst the new bridge is being built?
Yes. The preferred option can be built while the old one remains in operation, minimising disruption and ensuring local connectivity and access is maintained.
What will happen to the timber from the old bridge?
The old timber will be made available to the local community via the Towns of Claremont and Cottesloe.
When will the new bridge be built?
