Trafalgar Bridge: Rejuvenation Project

Consultation has concluded

The Trafalgar bridge was constructed in 1994 by East Perth Redevelopment Authority (EPRA) and was eventually handed over to the City in 1997. The existing timber decking is reaching the end of its useful life and is in need of renewal where it is evident a number of the timber decking planks are splitting, and some are in various stages of decay.



To maintain the aesthetics, all the existing decking on Trafalgar Bridge with be replaced with timber planks and will involve the installation of new bolting system, the dismantling and disposal of the existing decking.

Two options are proposed for the replacement of the bridge decking.

Option 1 - The full deck is replaced during the 2019-2020 financial year. During the construction phase the bridge will be closed to the public for approximately 4 to 5 weeks.

Option 2 - The works will be undertaken as staged works where 50% of the deck is replaced during the 2019-2020 financial year and the remaining the following year. The bridge will be closed for approximately 3 to 4 weeks for each stage.

For both options, the bridge will be open during event days at Optus Stadium and on weekends.

The proposed working hours and days are:

  • Working Hours: 7am to 7pm
  • Working Days: Monday to Friday

This engagement is required to determine the preferred option so that the City can include any requirement in the procurement of services for the deck replacement works.
