About the project

Council identified the South Bank ferry terminal for an upgrade to meet the requirements of the Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport (DSAPT) (2002) and Disability Discrimination Act 1992.

The old terminal consisted of two separate pontoons that catered exclusively to CityCat vessels and had been operational since the CityCat service was introduced in 1996.

The upgraded terminal features improved accessibility for all passengers and has increased the terminal capacity to cater for current and future demand.

The terminal has been designed to accommodate all vessels in Council’s fleet. It will support the busy South Bank precinct by allowing residents and visitors to easily access the precinct and surrounding areas via Brisbane’s ferry network.
