Mawson Interchange Shared Use Path upgrade

The Department of Infrastructure and Transport (DIT), in collaboration with the City of Salisbury, will be upgrading pedestrian and cycling access to the Elder Smith Road Bridge and Mawson Interchange, Mawson Lakes.

The works include:

  • Installation of a shared use path, ramp and stairs on the southern side of the Elder Smith Road Bridge to:
    • enable easier pedestrian and cycling access to the bridge from the western side of the rail corridor via Augustine Street.
    • connect the shared use path on the bridge to the Mawson Interchange and the City of Salisbury’s Green Trails.
  • Widening of the shared use path on the Elder Smith Road Bridge to better cater for pedestrians and cyclists and improve access to the Interchange.

In addition to pedestrians and cyclists, these upgrades will improve access for people with prams, wheelchairs and other mobility devices (DDA compliant).

The upgrade will also link to the City of Salisbury’s Green Trails Network.

The project is scheduled to commence in late September 2017, and are expected to be completed early 2018, weather permitting. The City of Salisbury’s Dry Creek bridge works are expected shortly thereafter.

Please note, there will be no impact to train services.

While every effort will be made to minimise impacts during construction works, intermittent speed and lane restrictions may be in place on Elder Smith Road subject to on site conditions.

A number of car parks will also be zoned off in the Mawson Interchange car park to use for construction activities.

Please keep the above in mind when planning your journey.
