The Causeway Cyclist & Pedestrian Bridge will provide a link from Perth's central business district to Victoria Park and beyond. It will be constructed downstream of the heritage-listed Causeway Bridge to improve access across the Swan River. Currently, more than 1,400 cyclists and 1,900 pedestrians use the 2m-wide Causeway path each day,

The new route will be 6m wide and made up of two structures - measuring 250m on the Victoria Park side and 140m on the city side - connected by a 270m path through Heirisson Island. The pylons in the Swan River will be between 35m and 40m high.
