FERRY NEWS

Council has advised that the electronic  trial for the payment of fees on the Settlement Pt. ferry was a success. Congratulations to all involved. We wait for the next step.

Council has announced that the Settlement Pt ferry will be slipped on 16 October this year and the Hibbard ferry will be towed down to replace it. The slipping is at Birdons and will take  6-8 weeks as the ferry condition is never known exactly  until it’s thoroughly checked.

The morning and later noon bus will run as usual but Council refused our request for a lunch time bus on the grounds that the number of  passengers would be insufficient and “it would cost over $11k of community money ” ( the Mayor).

Residents with two cars usually park one on the south side and “Kangaroo” Park near the Settlement Pt. ferry is used for park and walk.

Intense lobbying and a meeting with the relevant engineer at Council has resulted in Council dropping its plan to paint angled parking signs on road at  the north side of the Settlement Pt ferry. It will retain the box arrangement. Common sense has prevailed!
