Pas­sen­gers find shel­ter at ferry jetty

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

TWO new shel­ters have been in­stalled at the Transperth ferry jetty in South Perth.

It is the first time pas­sen­gers wait­ing for the ferry at Mends Street have had ac­cess to shel­ter in the de­par­ture area.

The par­tially en­closed shel­ters cost about $90,000 and will pro­tect pas­sen­gers from the weather.

They were trans­ported to the jetty from Fre­man­tle by barge and then craned into place on March 30.

As part of the project, two new ticket machines will also be in­stalled un­der one of the shel­ters, mak­ing buy­ing a ticket more con­ve­nient for pas­sen­gers.

They are ex­pected to be op­er­a­tional mid-April.

The Transperth ferry op­er­ates on a 15-minute fre­quency un­til June 1, when the win­ter timetable comes into ef­fect.
