Jet Ski Social Ride A new pontoon at West End - Brisbane
« on: October 19, 2018, 09:51:21 AM »
Seems to be good news, with this and two others opening up in the coming months.  Although I am not so sure about the South Bank one.  There are existing place to pull up already so why duplicate it when there a so many other places on the river that would be ideal. Also, I have seen ski's getting bumped up quite a bit on the existing pontoons due the wakes for boats speeding past.

Wait and see I guess.  At least something is being done.

"Two further river hubs will open in the coming months at New Farm and Durron Park, while further hubs have been proposed at New Farm Park and South Bank."

Hi Stu, this is the city councils river access network, input was provided by AJSA an other recreational clubs at the QRBC, but not sure they fully resolved the boat bashing issue. The Hamilton dock has great coffee!

The West End Recreation Hub opened 18 October 2018 and can now be used by both passive and recreational crafts.
Construction at the site of the New Farm Park River Hub has started and land-based works at Dutton Park Recreation Hub are also underway. 
The New Farm Park and Dutton Park facilities are anticipated to be open for use in coming months, weather and construction conditions permitting.

West End Recreation Hub

Construction is now complete of the West End Recreation Hub, located on Riverside Drive between Kurilpa Street and Rogers Street in West End.
The West End Recreation Hub is a dual freeboard facility providing new short-term use areas for both passive and recreational craft. The lower freeboard height on the inner pontoon face allows passive craft users a sheltered area to more easily enter and exit the water. The higher freeboard on the front face of the pontoon can accommodate recreational craft and in the future, potential on-demand water taxi pick-up and drop-off.
Council will be monitoring the usage of the pontoon over the next 12 months and we welcome feedback on all operational aspects such as duration of stay, signage, and usage.
To provide feedback, please complete the online feedback form by visiting: https://yoursay.brisbane.qld.gov.au/RAN

New Farm Park River Hub
Construction of the New Farm Park River Hub has commenced onsite.
Construction is taking place primarily from the water, involving piling activities and attachment of the pontoons to the piles. Lighting and services will be installed on the pontoons and minor landscaping and footpath works will also occur where the River Hub meets the park.
The New Farm Park River Hub will provide new opportunities for commercial operators to pick-up and drop-off of passengers to this popular recreational area, along with short-term use for recreational craft and passive craft such as kayaks and canoes.
Council is reviewing the operations and regulations in place for existing river infrastructure alongside community feedback to create an operating model that is tailored for this facility. 
The New Farm Park River Hub is anticipated to be open for use in coming months, weather and construction conditions permitting.

Dutton Park Recreation Hub
 
Construction of the Dutton Park Recreation Hub has started onsite.
Land-side works to facilitate the installation of ramping are now underway and works over water, including piling, are expected to start in coming months, following the New Farm Park piling works.
Council is re-purposing the former Dutton Park ferry terminal site to provide new lifestyle and leisure options for residents and visitors to enjoy the Brisbane River.
The Recreation Hub will provide new opportunities for kayakers and canoeists to access the river and a new way for residents and tourists to access the local area. The dual freeboard pontoon provides short-term use areas for passive craft on the inner face, recreational craft on the outer face and in the future, potential on-demand water taxi pick-up and drop-off.
Council is improving access to the Hub from the carpark via ramping to include space to handle typical kayaks or canoes.
The Dutton Park Recreation Hub is anticipated to be open for use in coming months, weather and construction conditions permitting.
