Transport for NSW today said construction on the accessibility upgrade of Pyrmont Bay Wharf will begin after further consultation with the community.

The upgrade of Pyrmont Bay Wharf had been planned to start this month, with Sydney Ferries services to be detoured to the nearby Casino wharf during construction. But the project will now begin at a later date.

“The summer period is the peak season on Sydney Harbour, and it is particularly busy for private charter vessels, with demand for berthing facilities at its highest during this time,” a Transport for NSW spokesman said.

“Starting construction of this significant project at a later date will ensure there is no disruption to customers and businesses during the busiest time of the year.”

Customers are advised there will be no change to the F4 Darling Harbour ferry service to Pyrmont Bay Wharf.

“We will deliver the upgrade of Pyrmont Bay Wharf, and we will be keeping customers informed of the new closure date and alternative transport arrangements well in advance,” the Transport for NSW spokesman said.

“The upgrade of Pyrmont Bay Wharf will deliver significant improvements for customers, particularly those with disability, parents with prams and the elderly.

“Customers will benefit from better protection from the sun, wind and rain and better access to and from the wharf as well as on board ferries.”
