Victoria Park in Perth’s inner east has been linked to the CBD by road via the causeway bridges since the 1830’s, through 3 iterations with it still being a vital link to this day. Though the bridges have been replaced and expanded over the decades they are still limited for space, not just for vehicles but more pressingly for cyclists and pedestrians. The existing walkway across the bridges has become increasingly busy with both pedestrian and cyclists and being heritage listed there is no way to expand it on the existing bridges.
As part of the West Australian State Government investment in pedestrian and cycling infrastructure across the city, a pair of bridges are being built to link Victoria Park and the CBD via Herrision Island with a new principle shared path to replace the existing narrow space on the causeway bridges.
The project to design and construct the new link has been awarded to the Causeway Link Alliance which includes Civmec Construction and Engineering as a leading member.
To base themselves near the site, Civmec are setting up a project office in Victoria Park near the landing site for the bridge and path. Having worked with Civmec over many years on numerous projects Lightspeed Communications & Electrical were engaged by Civmec to connect, terminate and test data and power cabling in the new office for the project team.
The project included the installation of a video conferencing system and large display in the meeting room to enable the project team to connect with alliance members, suppliers and stakeholders remotely.
Though Lightspeed have only been a small part of this project so far, we are proud to be helping make Perth a safer, more connected, and more liveable city for cyclists and pedestrians for decades to come.
