Milsons Point Wharf expansion

The NSW Government has announced an expansion of Milsons Point Wharf and interchange to increase capacity and improve service levels for ferry customers. This additional upgrade will increase the capacity of Milsons Point Wharf, providing a second platform to enable two ferries to berth at the same time.

The expanded Milsons Point Wharf and upgraded interchange

The proposed concept for the expanded wharf and upgraded interchange is designed to improve access to the wharf and provide capacity to support additional ferry services provided by the new Inner harbour and Parramatta River ferries by adding a second berthing face. To provide two berthing faces, the existing wharf would be retained and the gangway and hydraulic platform would be duplicated.

The existing waiting area roof would shift to the middle of a single waiting area extending between the two gangways. The new waiting area would house the customer information display and electronic ticketing system and provide seating and weather protection. The waiting area will be accessed from the foreshore by the existing ramp, with a new access ramp leading from Alfred Street to the wharf and new stairs connecting the wharf to the foreshore proposed.

The landside upgrade would include upgrading the ramp at the existing Alfred Street bus stop. This will connect it to existing pathways to improve accessibility. Accessible parking spaces, on Alfred Street to the south, would be upgraded near the foreshore to improve access.

The expanded wharf and upgraded interchange will provide:

  • Capacity for additional ferry services
  • Protection from the wind, rain and sun
  • Seating and waiting areas
  • Quick and efficient ferry boarding and disembarking
  • Improved access for mobility impaired customers and customers with prams
  • Improved pedestrian access
  • Upgraded interchange infrastructure
  • Effective way finding signage and lighting.

Project Background

The upgrade is part of the major progressive upgrade of ferry wharves across Sydney Harbour which aims to improve Sydney’s ferry services for customers, delivering accessible, safe, comfortable public transport infrastructure with capacity for extra ferry services. New and upgraded wharves and interchanges are being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program.

This program has most recently delivered upgraded facilities at Cremorne Point, Mosman Bay, Drummoyne, Balmain East, Pyrmont and Meadowbank with work at McMahons Point nearing completion.
