Contract finalised for $110M Mandurah Estuary Bridge

Contract finalised for $110M Mandurah Estuary Bridge

A contract has been finalised for Georgiou Group to design and deliver the duplication of the Mandurah Estuary Bridge, south of Perth.

Georgiou Group was named as the preferred proponent to design and deliver the project back in late September, with the company having previously completed works for the WA Main Roads. This includes recent works on the Mandurah Traffic Bridge, as well as on-going works as part of the alliance delivering the new Fitzroy River Bridge.

Built in the 1980s, the original bridge was designed to be duplicated when required to meet increased demand from traffic. Once completed, the bridge duplication will ease congestion in the approach to the Mandurah Estuary and deliver a safer, more efficient and reliable transport link for motorists

The project involves construction of a second, two-lane bridge on the south side of the current bridge. The project will also include construction of a new four-metre-wide shared path to improve connectivity and access to recreational activities for the local community.

Addressing the demands of a rapidly expanding population, the upgrade will not only improve safety but reduce travel times for the more than 33,000 daily users of the existing Mandurah Estuary Bridge.

Detailed design will be carried out before construction gets underway, with the project expected to be completed by late 2025.
