River-based geotechnical investigations South Bank 2 ferry terminal

River-based geotechnical investigations
South Bank 3 ferry terminal

Brisbane City Council is undertaking river-based geotechnical investigations at five ferry terminals from September to early October 2015, to assist with the planning for future Disability Discrimination Act upgrades at ferry terminals.

Preliminary investigation works will occur at Thornton Street, Eagle Street Pier, South Bank 3, Dockside and Norman Park ferry terminals. A river based barge with a drilling rig is planned to move from terminal to terminal, spending approximately three to five days at each location to undertake core sample drilling into the bed of the Brisbane River.

Businesses close to the South Bank 3 ferry terminal may notice a small increase in noise associated with these works, as the barge moves into place and the drilling occurs. Works will generally be undertaken Monday to Saturday, between 7am and 6pm. Some Sunday works may be required.

Short term closures and alternative transport
For safety reasons associated with barge movements, short term closures will be required at the South Bank 3 ferry terminal. The closures will occur intermittently during off peak times and are expected to be less than two hours in duration. Signage at the terminal will notify passengers of the dates and times anticipated for these closures as tidal, weather and ground conditions will influence each closure.

During the closures, commuters are advised to seek alternative transport from nearby terminals. CityHopper services are available from the Maritime Museum ferry terminal, approximately 350 metres south, while CityCat services are available from South Bank 1 and 2, approximately 600 metres north.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience while we complete this work. We will attempt to minimise disruptions where possible.
Council is currently in the planning stage for future ferry upgrades and when further information is available the project team will update local residents, businesses and stakeholders.

If you have any queries, please contact our free call information line on 1800 884 681 or email ferryinfrastructure@brisbane.qld.gov.au. For information outside of business hours call Council’s 24 hour contact centre on (07) 3403 8888.

Yours sincerely

Mark Theobald Principal Project Manager
