The NSW Government is proposing to upgrade Greenwich Point Wharf as part of the Transport Access Program.
AUG 2021Project update
Thank you to everyone who took the time to provide feedback on the concept design for the proposed upgrade. We are investigating options to further refine the design to address the feedback from the community. We will provide an update when we publish the consultation report in the coming months. Read more in the August project update (PDF, 91Kb).
Transport for NSW is improving Sydney’s ferry services for customers. New and upgraded wharves are being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program.
Customers with mobility needs are currently unable to access Lower Serpentine Road from Greenwich Point Wharf. The existing wharf at Greenwich Point includes a set of tidal steps for ferries to berth, a concrete jetty connecting the wharf to land and a small waiting shelter for passengers at the end of the wharf.
The proposed wharf design includes a new floating pontoon. A new pontoon would improve the efficiency and safety for ferries to pick-up and drop-off passengers. It would also provide an area for recreational boats to berth.
Upgrades would include:
- a waiting area with a curved roof, seating and glass weather protection panels for passenger comfort
- an uncovered gangway and jetty
- a new lift and stairs
- new bicycle parking hoops
- existing bus shelter on Lower Serpentine Road relocated closer to the stairs and lift.
The new wharf would provide Greenwich Point with facilities that all members of the community can access.
In designing the new wharves a number of areas need to be considered such as accessibility, the environment, customer safety and amenity, future demand and ferry operations. These are outlined in the Design Considerations factsheet (PDF, 335Kb).
The existing wharf structure and shelter would be removed as part of this upgrade.
Customers are advised the existing footpath and stairs along the foreshore will connect to the new stair structure.
Ferry services to Greenwich Point Wharf may be interrupted during the construction of the proposed wharf. Every effort would be made to lessen the disruption to the community.
More information and the opportunity to provide feedback about how construction could affect you will be provided as part of the Review of Environmental Factors process.
