Church Point Cargo Wharf Serving Offshore Residents Re-Opens After Major Upgrade

Northern Beaches Council has re-opened the much-used Cargo Wharf on Mccars Creek Road at Church Point following a $1,460,000 upgrade of the facility, greatly improving its functionality, amenity and safety.

The Cargo Wharf was re-opened for operation on Monday 7 January, with Council staff now adding the finishing touches by landscaping the two reserves either side of the new wharf.

Scotland Island and Pittwater’s western foreshore commercial users will be the main beneficiaries of the improvements to the Cargo Wharf which is an essential piece of infrastructure for our offshore communities, according to Northern Beaches Mayor, Michael Regan.

“The Cargo Wharf is the primary launching point for transporting bulky supplies such as heavy machinery and building materials to Scotland Island and the western foreshore,” said Mayor Regan.

“The upgraded Cargo Wharf now extends further into the water and is slightly wider, make berthing easier for vessels and improving safety and functionality for private and commercial users. The improvements especially benefiting offshore residents from Scotland Island, Elvina Bay, Lovett Bay, Morning Bay and the Douglas Estate.”

Work on the Cargo Wharf commenced in October 2018.

Council has been working with the Aesthetic Advisory Group, comprising volunteer design professionals from the local community, to find the best possible design outcomes for the area.

“The wharf presented an opportunity to invest in upgraded infrastructure whilst repairing an old structure,” said Mayor Regan.

“The Church Point Aesthetic Advisory Group has continued its involvement in the project, using the group members’ experience and local knowledge to ensure the character of Church Point is maintained by the new works.”

“The landscaping in the two reserves will pay homage to the old Cargo Wharf with the old wharf timbers being reused for seating other landscaping features.”

“It’s a great result for the community and everyone involved deserves our appreciation and thanks,” Mayor Regan said.
