Tonkin Gap Shared Path Diversions

9 November 2020 to 2022

Works are scheduled to commence in November 2020 on the Tonkin Gap project that will not only see road and bridge duplications from Great Eastern Highway and Railway Parade but will also see the construction of a fully separated Principal Shared Path (PSP) connecting the recently constructed PSPs north, south and to the Midland Railway PSP.

This large undertaking will see the existing paths in the area being closed and detours in place in several stages for approximately 18-24 months.

In addition, the Alliance is also working on infrastructure to enable the Morely-Ellenbrook Line. Detours of the PSP between Railway Pde and Morley Drive is also required for a shorter period but will utilise the shared path on the eastern side of Tonkin Hwy where possible.

WestCycle has been working with Main Roads WA and the Tonkin Gap Alliance to ensure good outcomes for bike riders both during works and at its completion.

The existing shared paths will be closed in the following areas and staged as follows. 

Redcliffe Bridge 

  • From mid-November 2020 – the Shared path on the eastern side of Redcliffe Bridge will be closed and a detour in place.

  • Once the newly aligned shared path has been constructed, the detour will change slightly (see below)

Detour signage will be in place in these locations. For those travelling on the shared path along the northern (Bayswater) side of river, please follow the path along Wyatt and Dunstone Rds.
