The existing wharf at North Sydney includes an open-air jetty and tidal steps for ferries to pick-up and drop-off customers. Customers with mobility needs are currently unable to access High Street from the wharf.

We are proposing to upgrade the wharf at North Sydney to improve accessibility for our customers. A concept design has been developed and we are inviting the community and customers to have their say on the proposed upgrade.

The upgraded wharf would provide North Sydney with facilities that all members of the community can access.

These upgrades would improve the public transport experience for our customers.

The proposed wharf design would include a new floating pontoon. A new pontoon would improve the efficiency and safety of wharves for ferries to pick up and drop off passengers.

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 and jetty. An accessible ramp would be installed along the foreshore to access High Street.

New accessible parking and a kiss and ride zone will also be provided at the top of the ramp, including new bicycle hoops.

We are currently consulting with key stakeholders including the community as to whether the existing wharf structure will remain or be removed when the proposed upgrade is built. The final decision will consider all feedback, including project aims and constraints.

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.

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.
