Update on new Fremantle Traffic Bridge

Published on Monday, 27 May 2024 at 10:56:33 AM

A horizontal directional drill is on site and will be used to drill under the riverbed to connect a pipeline to both sides of the river. Watch out for a bigger, wider and longer drill rig arriving as Main Roads prepares to relocate the water lines.

The Fremantle Traffic Bridge currently houses telecommunications, gas and water services which need to be removed from the bridge. The process includes:

  • Decommissioning and replacing gas services with new connection points north and south of the river
  • Removing telecommunication and water services and installing three new pipelines (one for telecommunications and two for water) under the riverbed.

For enquiries please phone 138 138 or email enquiries@mainroads.wa.gov.au.
