Matagarup Bridge Zipline

Matagarup Bridge at Night, Perth Western Australia

Byte Construct were selected by Main Roads to undertake this prestigious project to construct the infrastructure for a Bridge Climb and Zip Line on Matagarup Bridge. The bridge climb includes a 314 steps trek up the bridge to a sky view platform from where a zip line can be taken to Burswood Park foreshore.

The scope of works includes co-ordination of a 3D scan to enable fabrication of the structural steelwork (incorporating glass floor bridge) and installation of a 400m zip line over the Swan River back to a landing platform in Burswood Park. The accuracy of sizing / fabrication to the existing structures has been critical to the success of the project.

The landing platform has drive piling concrete bases and structural steel decking connected to the park infrastructure via hard landscaping.

Complexities of the project included working at heights over the bridge structure and water, and protection of the public below (which can be tens of thousands on Optus Stadium event days).

The Matagarup Zip Line will be a leading Tourism Icon for Western Australia for the coming years and will be a great addition to the Burswood Park Precinct.

This unique and iconic project is an excellent example of the versatility of Byte Construct.
