FLOOD RELIEF: Sydney Ferries has today announced a new service from Dee Why, traveling 13 kilometres inland to Chatswood.
Transport NSW says there will be six ferries per day starting at Pittwater Road.
“With many road and rail services closed or delayed due to flooding, we’re stepping up our ferry services,” says Transport Minister David Elliot.
“The new Dee Why to Chatswood service will take about one hour, depending on weather conditions and traffic.”
And, as rain continues, Transport NSW isn’t ruling out opening more ferry services.
“The NSW Liberal government remains committed to providing quality transport for the people of this state, especially at this difficult time,” he says.
The weather bureau has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for Sydney’s north east, stretching from the northern beaches inland to Hornsby.
“Hopefully our new ferry service won’t be disrupted too badly, but please be patient,” says the transport minister.
