About the project
Council has identified Guyatt Park ferry terminal as requiring an upgrade that will feature improved accessibility for all passengers and will increase the terminal capacity to cater for current and future demand.
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, including passengers with a disability, their families and carers, older residents, passengers using a mobility device and parents with infants in prams.
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 to help provide safe wayfinding; and upgraded lighting that meets 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.
The upgraded terminal will provide safe, equitable and dignified access and circulation for all travellers.
Further information on the timing of the closure and alternative transport options will be provided to residents and patrons closer to the start of construction.
