A popular cargo wharf in Church Point has been re-opened following extensive upgrade works that cost $1.46m.

The wharf was re-opened for operation on January 7, following extensive works to improve the facility’s functionality, amenity and safety.

Northern Beaches Council is currently finishing off the project by carrying out landscaping works to reserves either side of the wharf.

“The cargo wharf is the primary launching point for transporting bulky supplies such as heavy machinery and building materials to Scotland Island and the western foreshore,” Mayor Michael Regan said.

“The upgraded cargo wharf now extends further into the water and is slightly wider, make berthing easier for vessels and improving safety and functionality for private and commercial users.

“The improvements especially benefiting offshore residents from Scotland Island, Elvina Bay, Lovett Bay, Morning Bay and the Douglas Estate.”

Work on the wharf commenced in October 2018.

Cr Regan said the council worked closely with a local community group on the project.

“The Church Point Aesthetic Advisory Group has continued its involvement in the project, using the group members’ experience and local knowledge to ensure the character of Church Point is maintained by the new works,” Cr Regan said.

“It’s a great result for the community and everyone involved deserves our appreciation and thanks.
