Milsons Point Gangway

The Design Team at TES has built its reputation for design of large scale projects for public and private infrastructure, including recycling, mining, materials handling, oil, gas and waste water projects. Our team also designed the public maritime facilities at the Milsons Point Wharf.

The current Design team at TES designed the 26-ton gangway for the new Milson’s Point ferry wharf at the heart of Sydney’s maritime and tourist facilities, where it must withstand an aggressive maritime environment in a busy port while delivering ongoing safety and high load capacity.

This project involved a 26-ton gangway for the new Milsons Point ferry wharf, just under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The 24m long and 4.4m wide structure involved complex structural design to allow fabrication and profile cutting to form the enormous steel structure, which now absorbs high loading weights.

The gangway has not only been designed to safeguard the safety of millions of tourists, but also has been designed for longevity in terms of environmental factors, such as the salt water that surrounds a ferry wharf and the varying and vibrating loads that will use it.

The heavy fabrication and quality finish involved in this project are all especially designed to minimise corrosion, since it will be installed in a highly saline and busy industrial environment.
