WA and the federal government are duplicating bridges at Mandurah Estuary

The Western Australian government is calling for expressions of interest for the design and construction of the upcoming Mandurah Estuary Bridge Duplication project along the key WA freight route.

The project on the freight route bridge aims to reduce congestion while improving road user safety for operators.

The $110 million project is being jointly funded by the federal and WA governments on a half-half basis.

The project centres around building a second bridge alongside the existing structure, resulting in additional traffic lines being provided and more support for the current bridge.

Federal transport and infrastructure minister Catherine King says the project will reduce congestion and improve the transport link in the region to make the freight route safer as well as more efficient and reliable.

"Resilient and reliable transport is the backbone of the nation, especially in the Peel region, which relies heavily on local infrastructure such as this bridge as the key access point for local commuters, freight and visitors alike," King says.

"The federal government is getting on with delivering infrastructure projects just like this to improve access and safety for commuters right across Australia."
