Church Point Ferry Wharf Construction Work

Notice of Works to Church Point Ferry Wharf

Thursday 12th March 2020 between the hours of 8:15am – 18:00pm

Please be aware that Northern Beaches Council has scheduled to commence works to the Church Point Ferry Wharf. Works being conducted are structural pile replacement due to poor condition and safety hazards. The works are intended to be carried out on Thursday 12th March 2020 between the hours of 8:15am – 18:00pm.

An alternative wharf adjacent to existing ferry wharf (15m North) will be available throughout the duration of the works. Council will also provide on-site security to ensure pickups and drop-offs occur efficiently.

Although every effort will be made to minimise any inconvenience to your service while the works are proceeding, your cooperation and patience will be greatly appreciated.

Please note that inclement weather may delay the planned works.

Should you have any enquiries in respect of the work, please contact Customer Service on 1300 434 434.

Yours faithfully,

Victoria Keswick
