Project Background:

As part of the Perth City Deal CBD Transport Plan, the Trinity Shared Path is the section of East Perth Shared Path along the river between the Waterbank building and Metagarup Bridge (named Trinity because it sits between Trinity College and the River).

This project will improve the connection between Matagarup Bridge and the future Waterbank Perth redevelopment site. This will create a safer and more inviting transport route to improve connectivity to one of Perth’s greatest tourist attractions.

This project aims to achieve the following outcomes:

  • People feel safer when walking and riding
  • Better perceptions of personal security at night
  • Fewer physical and design barriers for people walking, riding and accessing public transportation
  • Better wayfinding and legibility
  • More inviting and healthy streets
  • More walking, riding, and public transport to, from and within the city.

Your Feedback:

The Trinity Shared Path is now complete and ready for use. A perception survey can be found below and will allow you to provide feedback on your perception of the new path. This information will assist the project team with measuring any perception changes after the shared path upgrades. A short summary report of what you told us will be available on Engage Perth once complete.

Thank you for your participation.


Perth City Deal Program Background

Perth is currently in one of its largest infrastructure booms in development history. We are seeing an abundance of new destinations in and around the Greater CBD, such as Yagan Square, and Optus Stadium. To help provide alternative transport options and reduce car dependence around this great new infrastructure and within the inner city the Perth Greater CBD Transport Plan has been developed.

This plan includes a four-year program of prioritised initiatives and will outline a 10-year vision for future transport investment into the Perth CBD. These initiatives have been identified as key transport infrastructure, programs and services required to keep the Perth CBD moving as it grows, and will optimise the existing transport system. The plan has been developed by the Department of Transport and in close consultation between the City of Perth and Transport Portfolio partners, the Public Transport Authority and Main Roads Western Australia. Extensive consultation has been performed with residents, local businesses, industry bodies, health and educational establishments, local and State Government representatives, disability access and inclusion groups and the wider Perth community, to capture their transport vision for the city.

A number of high priority projects have been selected from this plan to form part of the historic Perth City Deal.

    Work on the limestone rock revetment is almost complete.

    The City of Perth (City) strives to protect our local trees during construction of projects and enhance our local environment through the design. One great benefit of the rock revetment is the protection of our existing trees by preventing soil erosion around their roots from the river waves. These trees provide the City with a great number of environmental, human health and social benefits, including reducing the surrounding temperatures.

    To ensure the protection of our trees throughout the design and construction process, a consultant arborist has ensured superior care was taken when working around the trees. To help minimise the damage done to tree roots, a special excavation technique called vacuum excavation was used. This allowed all trees within the site to be unharmed.

    The earthworks of the upgraded shared path are currently underway, the outline of the path can be seen in the image below. The new works will increase the width of the existing shared path to 3m, and provide a continuous route from Matagarup Bridge to the Causeway. Shared paths are specifically designed to accommodate the safe and efficient movement of pedestrians and bike riders concurrently.

    Construction begun onsite on the 21 March by Advanteering Civil Engineers. The construction of the rock revetment is well underway, as well as the demolition of the exiting path. The rock revetment is a tool to control erosion of the East Perth Foreshore, by placing large limestone rocks as protection from wide, waves and tidal flows.
