And back to the Fish Markets - timetable on Captain Cooks website http://s3-ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/ ... 80315a.pdf accepts Opal Pay but not present on Transport Info timetables as far as I can see.

That's an interesting TT - same arrival and departure times at the two terminals! It'll be interesting to see what actually happens.

I'm guessing it's less than 20 minutes running time and just not very precisely shown.

One hopes so, for I'm sure that the table would need padding to allow for large moving obstacles appearing on the route.

Yes that would be 4 months after closing but no official announcement on the reopening has been made yet. Posts of this type should enclose a link to such announcements.

There is a new timetable for the Parramatta River ferry as from 12th June which strangely is more than 2 months ahead but it still does not include Abbotsford.
I dont know what the new timetable is for.

Captain Cook Ferries have a new Lane Cove River timetable dated 16/4/2018 and Sydney Ferries a new one for the Cockatoo Island run dated 24/4/2018 both showing Birchgrove wharf as active again.

Updates and announcements

The new Birchgrove Wharf will open on Tuesday 24 April 2018.

F8 Cockatoo Island ferry services will resume from 6:30am on Tuesday 24 April from the upgraded wharf.

Services will operate to the scheduled timetable which will be updated before the wharf reopens.

Thank you for your patience during construction of the new wharf.

I’m glad they’re using logic in doing both wharves simultaneously. However, I would be concerned that the new Wharf placement may affect the turn around ability of the vessels. I could be and hope to be wrong!

Also glad they aren’t reopening amory Wharf as a temporary replacement. Mind you, I still think that should become a permanent stop just with a better Wharf haha.

Does anyone know if the proposed Ermington Wharf is ever going to happen?

What's more likely is a Camellia Wharf, as proposed in the Camellia Master Plan.

Armory is a potential replacement for Olympic Park and not Rydalmere.

Good to see them upgrading the wharfs out that way. A wharf at Camellia once redeveloped and also one for Rhodes would be good too.

I dont know what the new timetable is for.

There has since been a further new timetable dated 17th June which again includes Abbotsford so it seems to have reopened without any fanfare.
And over a month since any posts in this thread.

I noticed yesterday that May Gibbs (formerly Emerald 6 / Ferry McFerryFace) no longer shows any reference, outwardly at least, to the aforementioned controversial name.

Andrew Constance McConstanceFace is probably hoping everyone will forget by the time the election hoves into view. :P

I suspect 99.9% of people didn't and still don't care.

Personally I think it was great.
Millions of dollars equivalent free publicity from traditional and social media.
Lots of excited kids.

All for the price of simple decal sticker that probably coat $100

I wondered that too. They didn't say, just that they would be handy for people going to work or shopping.

Another brain fart from local government.

Is there a possibility that in the future Sydney Ferries will no longer operate Ferries to Manly and allow private operators such as Manly Fast Ferry and Captain Cook to take over?

I don't think so because Sydney Ferries fleet has much higher capacity.
However, Transport NSW could re-tender the operations of existing fleet to other private operators in the future.
