Roadworks are now complete on the $51.8 million Mandurah Traffic Bridge in Mandurah, Western Australia, with all four lanes now open to the public.

The new concrete bridge was first opened for two lanes of traffic, under restricted conditions, in September 2017. The opening of four lanes marks the completion of roadworks for the project.

The curved structure was built in 13 segments on the western foreshore by construction crews from Georgiou Group.

Each segment was then barged over Mandurah Estuary to the eastern foreshore over many months from the specially constructed concrete casting bed.

The new bridge’s four traffic lanes are divided by a concrete median with a separate five metre-wide pedestrian and cyclist path located on the north side of the bridge.

“Completion of the roadworks for the Old Mandurah Traffic Bridge Replacement project marks a significant milestone for the Mandurah community as they have worked hard over a number of years to develop and implement a plan to replace the old bridge,” said City of Mandurah Mayor Rhys Williams.

“The project has been a well-orchestrated partnership between the City of Mandurah, State Government and the design and construction contractor, Georgiou Group.”
