Church Point Cargo Wharf construction commences


We’re pleased to advise that the next phase of the Church Point Precinct Upgrade will start next week - the reconstruction of the Church Point Cargo Wharf. This upgrade will improve user safety and functionality for both private and commercial uses.

The new cargo wharf will extend further into the water and be slightly wider so as to remove the impact on traffic flow on McCarrs Creek Road and make berthing easier for vessels.

In preparation for reconstruction work the old wharf will be closed for the duration of the works starting from 29 October. We ask that any materials currently stored on the wharf be removed by 24 October.

The reconstruction involves demolishing the old cargo wharf structure, which has been in operation for decades, and replacing it with a suspended concrete structure, better suited to meet the demands of the commercial enterprises operating out of Church Point.

To assist wharf users and the off shore community we will construct a smaller temporary wharf which will be completed and operational prior to the closure of the old wharf. It’s anticipated the closure of the old wharf will be for eight weeks, weather permitting. The temporary wharf will be removed following the opening of the new wharf.

To improve the functionality of the temporary wharf, a temporary hardstand area has been made available next to the temporary wharf, available for public use. However, we do ask that no materials, bins or other deliveries are to be left unattended in the hardstand area, as these will take up already reduced space. Anything stored in this area which is affecting the functionality of the temporary wharf will be removed by Council.

Regular cargo wharf users are encouraged to use the boat ramp at Rowland Reserve in Bayview, where possible, as the temporary wharf has a smaller capacity and will require coordination between users.
