Part of the Western Path between Monash Avenue and Aberdare Road will be closed from Monday, 8 February 2021 due to construction works on The Kids’ Bridge, pedestrian detours will be in place.

The three metre wide, 217-metre long pedestrian bridge over Winthrop Avenue in Nedlands will connect the lawn area located between Perth Children’s Hospital (PCH) and the multi-story carpark on the Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre grounds to Kings Park.

Known as ‘The Kids' Bridge’, the facility will provide families and children using facilities on the Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre campus with the opportunity to escape the rigours of their hospital journey by safely visiting Kings Park. Visit the Main Roads WA website to learn more about the project.
