Two Brisbane ferry terminals closer to reality after contract awarded

Off By

Brisbane City Council has awarded a $25 million contract to a single supplier to build a ferry terminal at Howard Smith Wharves and upgrade the South Bank ferry terminal.

The contract came before council on Tuesday with an amendment to give priority to local fabrication when evaluating the bids as part of council’s efforts to support local business during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The South Bank ferry terminal upgrade will combine all ferry services, including CityCats and the smaller monohulled ferries, into one terminal covering the existing two berths.

The Howard Smith Wharves terminal, co-funded with HSW Nominees and the Fantauzzo group, with a $3 million contribution, will allow for dual berthing of CityCats and have the ability to berth monohulls.
