Project information

The new Parramatta Wharf

The upgraded wharf is designed to provide customers with an improved public transport experience. The new wharf will include a new floating pontoon connected to land by a new aluminium gangway. The existing seawall will be upgraded. The new pontoon will have a curved roof, seating and glass weather protection panels. All existing wharf structures will be removed and the existing waiting shelter on the foreshore will remain.

The upgrade will provide:

  • protection from the wind, rain and sun
  • improved seating and waiting areas
  • improved safety for customers
  • improved access for mobility impaired customers and customers with prams
  • more efficient ferry boarding and disembarking

Project background

The upgrade is part of the major progressive upgrade of ferry wharves across Sydney Harbour which aims to improve Sydney’s ferry services for customers, delivering accessible, safe, and comfortable public transport infrastructure. New and upgraded wharves are being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program.

Alternative transport during construction

Parramatta Wharf will be closed during construction and alternative transport will be provided. Customers will be able to catch a temporary bus service, route 60F3, to Rydalmere Wharf, which will connect with F3 Parramatta River ferry services.

Customers travelling to or from the city will also catch existing train services on the T1 Western Line or existing bus services on route M52 from Parramatta to Circular Quay via Victoria Road.

Customers will be encouraged to plan their trip by visiting or calling 131500 before starting their journey.

Community information

Community consultations

Initial consultation for the Parramatta Wharf upgrade was carried out in 2015. The feedback received helped us to understand our customers’ views about the current facilities and priorities for improvement.

The Review of Environmental Factors for the project was on display for community comment in April and May 2018. Roads and Maritime received three submissions relating to the proposal and has prepared a submissions report which summarises the feedback and responses.
