April 2018: River closure for bridge construction
Those who regularly navigate the Swan River between Burswood and East Perth should note the current closure of a 600 metre stretch to allow for the construction of the Matagarup Bridge.
The river is closed to all vessels, 300 m to the north and 300 m to the south of the bridge piers to protect worker and public safety.
It's expected the closure will be in place during April and May. The channel reopening date will be advertised on Main Roads website when it is confirmed.
