West End Public Pontoon Opens Up The Brisbane River

Wednesday, 19th Sep 2018

Work has begun on a new on-water public pontoon at West End, which will provide Brisbane River access for water-sports, transport and tour boat moorings.

The 25m long, 6m wide pontoon is located at Riverside Drive between Kurilpa and Rogers Streets.

It is an exciting new leisure and lifestyle facility for West End residents, opening up the Brisbane River making the riverside suburb an even more accessible and convenient place to live.

It is the first hub in the Brisbane City Council’s new River Access Network to start construction and it will become a launch site for kayaks, canoes and stand-up paddle boards as well as a future pick-up and drop-off location for water taxis.

The pontoon is expected to be complete later this year.
