Transport for NSW today advised the community that work to expand Milsons Point Wharf will start from 27 April.
The wharf will be closed for around six months to allow the essential work to be carried out.
The upgrade is part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program – an initiative to deliver, safe and accessible infrastructure across the state.
“The upgrade of Milsons Point Ferry Wharf will be carried out by Roads and Maritime Services. Work will start on Thursday 27 April and take around six months to complete, weather and maritime conditions permitting.
“During construction, ferry services and charters will operate from Jeffrey Street Wharf at Kirribilli.
“The expansion work will provide the public with a second platform, providing capacity for additional ferry services and improving boarding and disembarking.
“The expanded waiting area will provide additional seating areas, and improved pedestrian access from the foreshore to the wharf.
“Community feedback was taken into account in finalising the design, with two community information sessions held to discuss the expansion in detail.”
The Review of Environmental Factors (REF) was displayed late last year with eight submissions received.
The REF and submissions report are available at www.rms.nsw.gov.au/milsons-point-wharf
The temporary closure of the wharf will not affect the timetable for ferry services to other wharves, Customers can plan their trip using the trip planner at transportnsw.info or call Transport Info on 131 500.
