Western side appears closed, at least from the Burswood end. Anyone shed any light?

Noticed this last night.. the western gate is locked, but the eastern gate and ramp is completely closed off? Couldn't see any sign of any notices or alike?

I noticed the usual flooding on the pathway near Burswood from the train on Monday morning and saw the fencing panels up this morning. I plan to ride that way later in the week, so will see what I can find out. The fence could only be seen on the southern side of the eastern end, so the northern side of the bridge may be open?
Are there gates on the bridge? I can't recall seeing any before, so will see if I can get some answers on Wednesday.

I went home early yesterday, so never got all the info. Straight onto it this morning as I noticed railway fencing down on the Burswood end.

There are actually 2 bridges across the river. The road bridge is the Windan Bridge, and as roller mentioned, is still open. However, the Goongoongup Rail Bridge will be closed for several months. While googling to get the right spelling, I found this info from BWA.

The bridge walk/cycle way that runs under Goongoongup rail bridge (adjacent to Windan bridge in East Perth) will be closed from Monday 22 August for about 7 months. The path on Windan Bridge will still be in operation.

There will be no access to the bridge walkway for seven months while the work is being done. Fencing and signage will be in place. The path along Windan Bridge will still be available.

The work involves:

•Removal of the Principal Shared Path entering and exiting the south-east end of the bridge
•Extensive earthworks
•Drilling and construction of two piles
•Final fabrication of the anchors
•Drilling of anchor bore holes
•Insertion of anchor and grouting
•Fabricating and pouring of reaction blocks
•Load testing of anchor
•Excavation below the approach structure
•Strengthening of the existing piles
•Insertion of concrete panels

Train services will continue as usual.
For further information, email [email protected]


Same info posted on the PTA site

Removal of the PSP but no reinstatement?

With a guess, the re-instatement is probably not in the scope of the PTA work and will be done by 'others' once the PTA project work is complete. I should be able to get information from the relevant person on Monday.

My riding has been fairly minimal lately, but I have noticed from the train that the PSP has been re-opened this week. Looks like the time requirements blew out to more than the original 7 months, but the path appears to be back in place and in good condition.
