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 Bay Street from Double Bay Wharf unassisted. The existing wharf at Double Bay includes a set of tidal steps for ferries to berth and an access ladder for recreational boat users. A long jetty connects the wharf to land.
The proposed wharf design includes a new dual-sided floating pontoon. This 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.
The pontoon would have a waiting area with a curved roof, seating and glass weather protection panels to provide passengers with a comfortable place to wait for their ferry. The pontoon would be connected to land by an uncovered gangway.
The new wharf would provide Double Bay 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.
The existing wharf structure and jetty would be removed as part of this upgrade.
Ferry services to Double Bay Wharf would 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.
