The first stage of work at the ferry vehicle waiting area at Roberts Point on Bruny Island will commence this week.
Two queuing lanes will be added to the vehicle waiting area
and a temporary gravel all-day parking zone for drivers who park their cars and
walk onto the ferry will be included in the first stage of work.
The second stage, to commence in April 2019, will include
extending and sealing the gravel all-day parking zone, constructing a queuing
overflow area and vehicle turning circle, and applying the final seal and line
To ensure the safety of all road users and construction
workers reduced speed limits will be implemented. Motorists are asked to drive
with care and to follow all signs and the directions of traffic controllers.
To minimise the impact on Bruny Island locals and tourists, the
first stage of work is to be completed before the busy summer holiday period,
with the second stage due to commence in April 2019, following the peak season.
Access to the boat ramp, the Roberts Point kiosk, public toilets and nearby businesses
will be maintained throughout the duration of the work.
Existing all-day car parking options will be available until
the temporary gravel parking area is completed.
