April 29, 2021

Together with the Civmec SWC WSP team, Dissing+Weitling is shortlisted for the new Swan River Causeway Bridge in Perth, Australia.

  • Dissing+Weitling is among the two teams which have just been shortlisted for a new cable-stayed bridge over the Swan River in Perth, Western Australia.

    The shortlisted consortia are:

    Civmec SWC WSP (made up of Civmec, Seymour Whyte and WSP); and

    Matagarup Heirisson Alliance (made up of Decmil, Arup and SRG).

    The new Swan River Causeway Bridge will connect Perth’s central business district (CBD) to Victoria Park. The new bridge will be 6 metres wide, with dedicated lanes for pedestrians and cyclists.

    The new bridge will solve an untenable traffic situation in Perth city; more than 3,300 cyclists and pedestrians use the current Causeway Bridge every day and it's long been recognised as being too narrow to accommodate this daily demand.
