New Barangaroo Wharf opened to the public today, increasing Sydney’s ferry capacity and servicing the thousands of residents, visitors and workers travelling to Sydney’s newest commercial and residential district.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance travelled on the first ferry service to the new wharf this morning.

“Completion of the new Barangaroo Wharf is an important milestone for the New South Wales Government in delivering high quality transport infrastructure to support the Barangaroo development.” Premier Berejiklian said.

“Around 13,000 office workers have already moved into Barangaroo South, and this is expected to grow to 23,000 workers when the precinct is completed in 2021.”

Andrew Constance, Minister for Transport and Infrastructure explained the new wharf will provides improved services and access to and from the CBD.

“Fully-accessible Barangaroo Wharf will help unlock capacity constraints on the ferry network, and commuters will be able to easily connect with the CBD via Wynyard Walk.” Mr. Constance said.

“From today, customers will also benefit from more than 30 additional weekly services on the Parramatta River route, and customers from the Eastern Suburbs will be able to catch direct services to Barangaroo when the new cross Harbour ferry route is introduced in October.”

Any Parramatta River or Darling Harbour services that previously stopped at King Street Wharf will now use Barangaroo Wharf. There will be minor timetable changes on both routes to reflect the new arrangements.

New wharves feature two 48 m x 23 m pontoons that can accommodate up to 4 ferries each.
