About the project

The Guyatt Park ferry terminal upgrade will involve:

  • dismantling and removing the existing pontoon and gangway
  • installing new pylons
  • constructing a new gangway and new flood resilient, dual-berthing pontoon
  • refurbishing the existing passenger waiting area
  • installing new terminal identification signage
  • improving lighting and safety features.

Council’s ferry terminal upgrade program has committed more than $70 million over the next four years to upgrade existing ferry terminals to improve accessibility for all users. These upgrades ensure everyone can enjoy Council’s CityCat and CityFerry services.

These upgrades will make the terminal safer and easier to use for all passengers, including persons with a mobility or vision impairment, by integrating a variety of features to assist with accessibility. Features include easily accessible timetables and help points; braille and tactile signage including tactile ground surface indicators. This will provide safe wayfinding and upgraded lighting to meet current standards. These upgrades will also improve amenity by providing an additional covered waiting area with seating and rest-zones for persons with mobility impairment.

Closure details

Timing of the closure and alternative transport options will be provided closer to the start of construction.
