Together with the Civmec SWC WSP team, Dissing+Weitling will design the new Swan River Causeway Bridge in Perth, Australia.
The pedestrian and cyclist bridge will be constructed downstream of the heritage-listed Causeway Bridge, providing improved access across the Swan River.
The bridge is part of a major infrastructure plan, aiming to encourage more people to consider walking and riding as a transport option in the area. According to Perth City, currently more than 1,400 cyclists and 1,900 pedestrians use the two-metre wide Causeway path each day.
The new bridge will be six-metres wide and will provide a safer connection for people walking and riding from the Perth CBD to Victoria Park and beyond.
Project development and planning is under way, with construction anticipated to begin in 2022.
Dissing+Weitling's winning design for the Swan River Bridge is following another grand bridge project in Brisbane, Australia, the Kangaroo Point Green Bridge.
