Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime conducted a trial second ferry service during peak periods at Lawrence during April, in response to community concerns about lengthy delays.

Following an assessment of the trial a decision has been made to continue the second ferry service during peak periods.

Two ferries will continue to operate at the same time between the hours of 7.30am to 9.30am, and 4pm to 6pm Monday to Friday, including school holidays.

Thank you to those customers who took part in the online survey during the trial. The information gathered will help us improve the ferry service.

More information is available in the Second ferry trialled at Lawrence media release.
