The Westham Island Bridge connects Ladner with Westham Island. It opened to traffic on March 29, 1910. The bridge is approximately 325 metres long and consists of a swing span that opens for marine passage below. As one of TransLink’s oldest assets, this 108-year-old bridge requires repairs and maintenance to ensure it remains operational and safe.

 

Project Overview

As part of the TransLink Maintenance and Repair Program, rehabilitation work on the Westham Island Bridge took place from fall 2018 to spring 2019. The work was completed on March 8, 2019.

The work involved repairing and replacing components across the bridge, including:

  • Piles and pile caps
  • Floor beams and stringers below the deck
  • Deck and handrail
  • Swing mechanism

As one of TransLink’s oldest assets, this 108-year-old bridge requires regular repairs and maintenance to ensure it remains operational and safe. We thank everyone for their patience while we performed this vital rehabilitation work on one of the oldest bridges in the region.
