Church Point Commuter Wharf - Upcoming relocation and work

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.
Starting Monday 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 impact of the extended working hours, including minimising noise on site.

Access to ramp/gangway

Between 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 be ongoing.

Boat mooring / tie up

Boats tied up at the commuter wharf will be not be affected by the work to the gangway.  However, please note that boats will not be able to be moored on the seawall side of the pontoon whilst construction is in progress.
We advise boat owners that any boats moored to the pontoon on Monday 23 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.
Full details about this project and its history are available on the project page.
We thank you for your ongoing patience as we continue with this important project.
