Bruny Island – upgrade to ferry vehicle waiting area

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

From early November for up to four weeks, work will start on the first stage of the upgrade at Roberts Point, Bruny Island. This work is expected to be completed before the busy summer holiday period to minimise impacts on residents and tourists to Bruny Island.

What is happening?

The first stage of the upgrade at Roberts Point, Bruny Island will include:

  • 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.

Access to the boat ramp, kiosk, nearby businesses and public toilets will be maintained at all times.

The second stage is expected to start in April 2019, following the busy tourist season. This work will involve extending and sealing the gravel all-day parking area, building a queuing overflow area and vehicle turning circle, and applying a final pavement seal with new line marking. More detail about this work will be available closer to the time.

Traffic changes

Reduced speed limits and traffic control will be in place for the duration of the work. We ask all road users to follow signs and any direction given by traffic control for the safety of workers and motorists.

Pedestrian access to the boat ramp, the Roberts Point kiosk, public toilets and existing businesses in the immediate vicinity will be maintained at all times during ferry operating hours.
