With the 1866 built bridge connecting North Fremantle and Fremantle in urgent need of replacement, work commenced on a replacement in November 1937. It was envisaged to have a short lifespan with Fremantle Harbour expected to be extended further east. Hence it was built out of timber rather than concrete. It opened on 15 December 1939.
Construction of a replacement bridge is scheduled to commence in late 2021.
