Pedestrian bridge to link new ferry terminal

Posted on Thursday, January 30 2014 at 3:39 PM

Plans to build a 110-metre long pedestrian bridge that will span the entrance of Elizabeth Quay inlet have been unveiled by West Australian Planning Minister John Day.

The bridge will provide a link between the cafes and bars on the
promenades, the island and the new ferry terminal, Day says.

“The Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority consulted with key
stakeholders to ensure the bridge will enhance the design of the Elizabeth Quay
public realm, while also meeting the needs and requirements of pedestrians,
cyclists and the boating community,” he says.

“At five metres wide and with a clearance of 5.2 metres off the water,
the bridge will be generous enough for cyclists and pedestrians, sit high
enough above the water for most boats to pass underneath and will incorporate
feature lighting to add to the ambience of the quay at night.”

The bridge is expected to cost $440 million with completion due in the spring
of 2015.
