Bruny Island โ€“ 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.

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 on Lennon Road with new linemarking.

Traffic changes

Once the second stage of works start, reduced speed limits and traffic control will be in place until the works are completed. We ask all road users to follow signs and any direction given by traffic control for the safety of workers and road users.

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