Teneriffe terminal nears completion
Posted on Thursday, 15 December, 2011
The Lord Mayor Graham Quirk and I recently inspected the finishing touches on the new Teneriffe CityCat terminal, anticipated to be ready for CityCat services on 23 January 2012.
The $5 million dual-berth terminal will give Teneriffe residents access to CityCat services on top of the current cross-city CityFerry services.
Council is investing record funding into the CityCat network, and this new Teneriffe terminal will link one of the inner-city’s fastest growing suburbs with even more public transport options.
The project also has major benefits for ratepayers because more than a third of its cost has been offset by developer contributions.
Expanding the CityCat network is an important part of the Quirk Administration’s integrated approach to tackling traffic congestion, and it’s important that we continue to cater for Teneriffe’s growth by providing better public transport options for residents.
The new terminal is located next to the existing CityFerry terminal at Commercial Road, and brings the number of CityCat terminals to 17 including the Northshore Hamilton terminal which opened earlier this year.
