A development application has been lodged for the replacement of the Guyatt Park Ferry Terminal, located 46 Hiron Street, St Lucia.
Designed by City Projects Office the proposal is for a upgrade of Council’s Guyatt Park Ferry Terminal, including the removal, destruction or damage to some marine plants, located within the Brisbane River. The project will facilitate the dual berth of CityCat vessels require the existing pontoon, gangway and marine piles be demolished to facilitate the proposal.
– New dual berth pontoon (4 marine piles)
– New walkway (rest area – new entry)
– New roofed gangway (accessible grades)
– Passenger shelter (shading and weather protection)
– Seating, bins, and emergency call point
– Pontoon dimensions (approx. 26m x 13m)
– Walkway dimensions (approx. 9.7m x 2.8m)
– Timetabling information and lockable gates
– Existing waiting area converted to seating area
– New lighting and bicycle racks,

According to the planners at City Projects Office, “the proposed development involves provision of a dual-berth pontoon, improved waiting and access infrastructure, and landside works to provide a compliant pathway and address amenity, safety and accessibility. The new ferry terminal will also have enhanced flood resistance and will be consistent with the colours and design elements of other recently upgraded ferry terminals. The upgrade will provide for future capacity increases to the ferry network, and provide access for residents, students and business within the St Lucia area. The upgrade will also provide interpretable information to guide integration of public transport across the city.”
