Council's plan to return ferry services
Brisbane City Council is working to deliver our prioritised roadmap to recovery for our terminals and services.
Council has a three-stage plan to return ferry services to the Brisbane River.
Under stage one of the plan, Council successfully reinstated the Bulimba to Teneriffe Cross River service on Monday 4 April. A new, temporary cross river service between West End and Guyatt Park commenced Monday 11 April.
Stage two of Council’s plan commenced on Monday 2 May, with a triangular cross river service between New Farm Park, Hawthorne and Teneriffe.
Stage three commenced on Thursday 19 May, reconnecting CityCat services to all available terminals, including West End, Guyatt Park, South Bank, Riverside, Mowbray Park, New Farm Park, Hawthorne, Bulimba, Teneriffe, Bretts Wharf, Apollo Road and Northshore Hamilton.
CityHopper services recommenced between South Bank, Riverside and Howard Smith Wharves and the Bulimba to Teneriffe Cross River service continues to operate on a revised 15-minute frequency.
The temporary Guyatt Park to West End Cross River and Hawthorne Cross River services ceased with the reinstatement of other ferry services.
Works are continuing as part of stage three to return the remaining terminals to service. Further updates will be provided as more terminals become operationally available.
Council is continuing to work with the ferry operator, maritime engineers and technical experts to recover and restore terminals to pre-flood condition.
Progressively reinstating the full network remains a priority, and we are in the final stage of our plan to return ferry services across the city. Repair works began in August 2022 at each of Council's eight remaining offline ferry terminals.
Works on Holman Street, Maritime Museum, Milton, QUT Gardens Point, Sydney Street and UQ St Lucia terminals are expected to be completed later this calendar year, subject to detailed contractor programs and weather.
Regatta and North Quay require further structural repairs to gangways and terminals and Council anticipates works to be completed by January 2023, subject to detailed contractor programs and weather.
