Teneriffe CityCat construction begins

20 July, 2011

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has today announced construction work has now started on the $5 million Teneriffe dual berth CityCat terminal.

The Lord Mayor said Teneriffe residents and commuters would be connected to Brisbane’s CityCat network by the end of the year, as he delivered another piece of vital infrastructure for local suburbs.

“Council is investing record funding into the CityCat network, and this new Teneriffe terminal will link one of the inner-city’s fastest growing suburbs with even more public transport options,” Cr Quirk said.

“The project also has major benefits for ratepayers because more than a third of its cost will be offset by developer contributions.

“Expanding the CityCat network is an important part of my Can Do team’s integrated approach to tackling traffic congestion, and as well as putting this terminal online we will also add the 18th CityCat to our fleet in the next couple of weeks.”

The new terminal will be constructed next to the existing CityFerry terminal at Commercial Road, Teneriffe and will include:
• a sheltered ramp, gangway and waiting area containing 50 seats
• non-slip gangway and pontoon flooring
• a dual berth pontoon
• provision for a go-card top-up machine
• two off-peak and overnight CityCat moorings
• sustainable measures including recycled building materials, a rainwater tank and solar panels along the length of the gangway.

Cr Quirk said the Teneriffe terminal would connect passengers with other popular public transport options, integrating with the high frequency CityGlider and 199 BUZ bus services.

“This new terminal will help reduce congestion and demand for parking in the Teneriffe area, and also offers improved disability accessibility with wider gangways and easier access to the pontoon” he said.

“It will be built using sustainable features including solar panels, a 3000 litre rainwater collection tank and recycled building materials.”

The existing cross-river CityFerry service from Teneriffe to Bulimba will continue alongside CityCat services when the terminal opens.
