Bruny Island – upgrade to ferry vehicle waiting area

The Department of State Growth is upgrading the Bruny Island vehicle waiting areas at Roberts Point.

What is happening?

Stage 1 - Completed

The first stage of the upgrade at Roberts Point, Bruny Island has been completed. Works included:

  • Adding two queuing lanes to the vehicle waiting area for the ferry service
  • Preparing a temporary gravel car park for all-day parking (mostly residents) who walk onto the ferry
  • Utility relocation.

Stage 2

The second stage started in May 2019, following the busy tourist season, and was completed in August 2019.

This work involved extending and sealing the gravel all-day parking area, building a queuing overflow area and vehicle turning circle, and applying a final seal and new linemarking on Lennon Road.
