North Freo path closure: Tydeman Road to the Fremantle Traffic Bridge

Works to replace the Fremantle Traffic Bridge are ramping up, and so are the associated impacts on bike riders. 

From Tuesday 4 June 2024 the shared path adjacent to the rail line between Tydeman Road and the western side of Queen Victoria Street will be closed. Pedestrian and cyclist movements will be maintained via Tydeman Road and Queen Victoria Street.


If you have any queries or concerns about the path detour phone Main Roads on 138 138, email [email protected] or go to Swan River Crossings | Main Roads Western Australia for information about the project and to sign up for updates.

Bike riders should expect significant disruptions to local road and path networks from this project to the end of 2026.
