Rhodes is to get a new ferry wharf next year.

Drummoyne MP John Sidoti said the new wharf will be located next to the Ryde Bridge and five month’s work to build it will start later this year.

A sneak preview will be held at Rhodes Community Centre between 5pm and 7pm on Thursday September 17.

“Plans for the new wharf include a curved zinc roof, glass panels to provide weather protection, a steel pontoon, concrete bridge and aluminium gangway.” Mr Sidoti said.

“I encourage readers of The Weekly Times to come along to the sneak preview and find out more about this great project.

“We’ve already had community feedback on plans for the new wharf, interchange and ferry services at Rhodes which has been incorporated into the concept design after consultation was carried out in April and May this year.”

“It is part of the NSW Government’s commitment to deliver $100 million in improvements along Parramatta River, including new ferry vessels, extra services and new and upgraded wharves.”
