To provide ferry passengers with protection from the weather and to
make purchasing a ticket even easier, the Public Transport Authority has
installed two new shelters on the Mends Street Jetty. A CCTV camera
will also be installed for security coverage of the jetty, shelters and
The passenger shelter will seat around 14 people and the ticketing
shelter will have two cash ticket machines and one change machine.
Temporary fencing will be erected whilst works to install the ticketing
machines are underway. Once these are up and running in mid-April 2017,
the current machines will be removed.
The shelters were made off-site in one piece, barged down the river
from Fremantle and lifted into position using a crane.
