RECFISHWEST is pleased to see that important fishing features have been considered for the upgrade of Mandurah’s iconic Old Traffic Bridge.
The $51.8m project funded by the State Government and the City of Mandurah will see the construction of a four-lane bridge featuring a pedestrian walkway and new fishing platforms.
For many years, the Old Mandurah Traffic Bridge has been an iconic WA land-based fishing location providing high quality fishing and crabbing opportunities for all in the community.
We are delighted the State Government has listened to the views of the community in ensuring the design and construction creates a new bridge that reflects the importance of local culture and recreation.
This announcement will ensure this accessible and safe family fishing spot can be enjoyed for generations to come.
It also recognises the importance of recreational fishing in the Mandurah region and follows behind the recently announced artificial reef development, due to be deployed in local waters this summer.
