Project information

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 and comfortable public transport infrastructure. New and upgraded wharfs are being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program.

In response to community feedback during the display of the Review of Environmental Factors ferry services will be temporarily relocated to Clarke Road Wharf.

The new wharf will provide customers with an improved public transport experience. The new wharf will include a floating pontoon connected to land by an uncovered gangway and entry bridge.

The pontoon will have a curved roof, seating and glass weather protection panels. All existing wharf structures will be removed.

Some of the land surrounding the wharf will also be upgraded to improve customer facilities and meet accessibility requirements. The waiting shelter and toilet will be refurbished and accessible paths to the wharf will be provided. The footpath will be raised and three accessible parking spaces will be realigned. Two kiss and ride parking spaces and new bicycle parking hoops near the wharf entry will also be provided.

Work to improve Woolwich Wharf will start after the completion of work at Clarke Road Wharf and will take about five months to complete. We will notify the community before starting this work.

Customers will be able to catch a temporary bus service, route 537, operating in a loop between Hunters Hill and Woolwich, to connect with the F8 Cockatoo Island ferry services.

This bus service is in addition to the existing bus services in the area. Customers are encouraged to plan their trip by visiting transport.nsw.info or calling 131 500 before starting their journey.
