    The design of the structural elements of the bridges derive inspiration from the stories of Fanny Balbuk and Yagan - two key figures associated with Heirisson Island.
  • The bridge is part of a major infrastructure plan, aiming to encourage more people to consider walking and riding as a transport option in the area. According to Perth City, currently more than 1,400 cyclists and 1,900 pedestrians use the two-metre wide Causeway path each day.

    The new bridge will be six-metres wide and will provide a safer connection for people walking and riding from the Perth CBD to Victoria Park and beyond.
