Church Point Commuter Wharf - Upcoming relocation and
Dear community member
As a community member with a registered interest in the Church Point
Upgrade project we’re writing to let you know about some upcoming
changes and programmed works to the commuter wharf.
23 October, work will be carried out to relocate the
commuter wharf, enabling construction of the permanent gangway from the
new boardwalk to the wharf. This new permanent access arrangement
will be from the centre of the newly constructed boardwalk.
In order to reduce the impact of the works on the offshore community
and ensure the safety of the site an extension to the standard
construction hours has been issued, with work commencing at 6am and
continuing until 9pm. Every effort will be made to minimise the
of the extended working hours, including minimising noise on site.
Access to ramp/gangway
6am and 9pm on Monday 23 October and 6am to 9pm on Thursday 26
October, there will be no access to the existing ramp/gangway.
Between these hours, the contractor, Ward Civil, will provide a small
boat and transport people from the commuter wharf to the smaller
commuter mooring provisions wharf behind Rostrevor Reserve.
We ask, where possible, that you avoid using the commuter wharf between
6am and 9pm on these days. Wharf users should also allow
additional time to access the commuter wharf between Monday 23 October
and Thursday 26 October, when the relocation and ramp construction will

October will remain moored to the pontoon whilst it is moved out four
meters and re-secured, some movement may be experienced and therefore
the use of fenders is recommended.
