Matagarup Bridge is a key element of the integrated transport
management solution to move people to and from Optus
Stadium on the Burswood Peninsula, east of Perth’s CBD.


The bridge is approximately 72m tall at its highest point and stretches 400m from bank to bank, with a steel cable-stay span of 160m at its centre.

Duratec was engaged to complete final protective coating treatment works to defects and cruciforms while maintaining public access to the bridge.

Duratec utilised a combination of rope and elevated work platform (EWP) access, including an SX 180 EWP, the highest reaching in the southern hemisphere.


  • Up to 45 staff operating on the project at any given time.
  • 2,200 repair locations formed the BOQ and variations.
  • Project completed using a certified gantry system to allow public access.


  • High Performance Coatings
