Sydney MP Alex Greenwich and Drummoyne MP John Sidoti have jointly announced the opening of a new commuter ferry wharf in Pyrmont.
The new wharf is part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program and will be prmoted as part of Sydney’s tourism circuit.
“This is great news for the local community who will benefit from the new wharf with better access, safety features and weather protection,” Mr Sidoti said.
“Families and tourists travelling to Darling Harbour also have a new gateway to the Australian National Maritime Museum, Habourside Shopping Centre and Inner West Light Rail.”
The new wharf has a brand new pontoon, bridge and a gangway.
The pontoon has a modern curved roof, glass weather protection panels and seating to provide improved comfort for customers.
“The NSW Government is committed to delivering better infrastructure for customers travelling on public transport,” Mr Sidoti said.
“I would like to thank ferry customers and the local community for their patience while work was undertaken to construct the new wharf.”
F4 Darling Harbour ferry services and Manly Fast Ferry services (drop off only) will operate from the upgraded wharf.
