SYDNEY OLYMPIC PARK WHARF REOPENS TO CUSTOMERS
Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance and Member for Drummoyne John Sidoti have today marked the reopening of Sydney Olympic Park Wharf following a major safety and accessibility upgrade.
F3 Parramatta River services resumed at Sydney Olympic Park this morning, with customers enjoying the benefits of a new covered pontoon and seating, while the modern design will make berthing safer and easier for vessels.
“This upgrade demonstrates the NSW Government’s commitment to providing better infrastructure for our ferry customers,” Mr Constance said.
“Our $770 million Transport Access Program is delivering accessible, modern and safe public transport, and Sydney Olympic Park Wharf customers are just the latest to benefit.”
Mr Sidoti said the wharf now offers better protection from the weather and more comfortable seats for customers.
“We want more people catching public transport, and the key to achieving that is to invest in upgrades where they’re needed most to boost the customer experience,” Mr Sidoti said.
“Sydney Olympic Park joins a growing list of wharves this government has upgraded which have ensured facilities and safe, modern and easy for people to access.”
For up to date timetable and service information, customers should call 131 500 or visit www.transportnsw.info.
Since March 2011, the NSW Government has increased public transport services for customers with more than 12,800 extra weekly train, bus and ferry services.
The rollout of Opal also means customers can access benefits like cheaper travel as well as saying goodbye to frustrating Monday morning ticket queues.
