For the first half century or so of the Swan River Colony's existence its emponymous River provided the main means of communication between Perth and Guildford. "Main" is the operative word here: the river never totally displaced road traffic, which grew in importance after the construction (as part of the construction of the Eastern Railway, the name bestowed on the Railway from Fremantle to Guildford) of the combined road and rail bridge at today's Sucess Hill. This provided a direct - if often impassible - route between the two towns.
