Riverbank Program to fund foreshore restoration projects

The Swan and Canning Riverpark is set to benefit from $1 million in funding for foreshore restoration projects as part of the McGowan Government’s commitment to improving the health of Perth’s rivers.

Projects include the restoration and enhancement of the McCallum Park foreshore in the Town of Victoria Park, revegetation and erosion control measures at the foreshore adjacent to Windan Bridge in the City of Perth, and foreshore restoration works at Woodbridge Riverside Park in the City of Swan.

The Riverbank Program was introduced by the Gallop Labor Government in 2002 to fund foreshore restoration projects that improve the health and amenity of the Swan and Canning Riverpark.

As part of the program, local governments match the State Government’s contribution of riverbank funding for foreshore works.

Since 2002, more than $38.5 million has been invested in foreshore restoration projects at 247 riverbank project sites on the Swan and Canning rivers.
