OCT 2021Consultation report

The NSW Government is upgrading Greenwich Wharf as part of the Transport Access Program – an initiative to deliver modern, safe and accessible transport infrastructure across the state.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the concept design for the proposed Greenwich Point Wharf Upgrade earlier this year.

We have listened to the community and as a result Transport for NSW has refined the design so the existing ramp can be maintained as it is highly valued by the community.

The lift structure is now proposed to be located next to the existing stairs which would also be upgraded.

The lift remains the preferred option as it provides the safest and most equitable access from street level to the wharf.

We are also investigating ways to improve the weather protection on the pontoon, improving access for recreational berthing, and lift wall design options.

You can view or download the Review of Environmental Factors (PDF, 76.3Mb) and its appendices (PDF, 37Mb) If you would like a copy sent to you please contact us using the details on this page.

We encourage you to ask questions and give your feedback on the REF by 5pm on Wednesday 19 January 2022.

We will consider all feedback received during the public display and prepare a Submissions Report that summarises the issues raised and our responses.

We will continue to keep customers and the community updated as the project progresses.

Transport for NSW is upgrading Greenwich Wharf as part of the Transport Access Program (TAP). The upgraded wharf will provide access for customers with mobility needs, meeting the standards of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA) and the Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport 2002 (DSAPT).

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

The new wharf would provide Greenwich Point with facilities that all members of the community can access.

Feedback received during the public display of the REF will be considered and reviewed by the project team.

Issues and concerns raised during this period will be addressed in the Submissions Report, which will be published in early 2022.

Detailed design will begin in early 2022 with construction expected to start in mid 2022, pending project approval.

Construction of the proposal would take up to six months to complete, weather and maritime conditions permitting.

It is expected that:

  • the wharf would temporarily close during construction
  • temporary changes to pedestrian movements would be put in place during construction
  • a small temporary construction compound would be established in Greenwich Park and Mary Carlson Park
  • some truck movements and temporary traffic changes would be required for land based work
  • minor pruning of vegetation to accommodate the new skybridge and lift.

Every effort would be made to minimise impacts to surrounding residents.

We would notify the community before starting work.

Wharf interchanges across Sydney are being upgraded to improve the transport experience for customers and the community. To find out more about wharf upgrades in your area visit the Wharf Upgrade Program page.

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).
