Progress on ferry idea

30 Jul 2013

By Sean Car

The Wyndham Harbour project was approved last month and could result in a faster arrival for the proposed ferry service link connecting Melbourne’s west to Docklands.

A government media release last month said the approval by Planning Minister Matthew Guy would help fast-tracking the service.

However, he was unable to confirm how quickly the Point Cook development would aid in accelerating the commuter link.

Mr Guy said that the approval will allow Wyndham Harbour to grow to a community of almost 1400 residents and provide new opportunities to Melbourne’s west.

“Expanding the Wyndham Harbour development will assist in providing a critical mass of population to make a commuter ferry service from Werribee to the city fully sustainable,” he said.

“Wyndham Harbour also provides new lifestyle opportunities to Melbourne’s west, opening up Port Phillip Bay to the western suburbs in the same way that the eastern suburbs have enjoyed the bay for decades.”

Mr Guy said that the development would assist in creating more than 3000 new jobs and present exciting new opportunities for tourism.

The harbour will be a residential, commercial and marina complex and the only safe boathouse between Williamstown and Geelong.
