Project Update - September 2020
Removal of some trees required to proceed with construction of the ferry terminals
The project team has identified certain trees located either on land or in the tidal-zone adjacent to the existing Russell, Macleay, Lamb, and Karragarra Island ferry terminals will need to be removed to proceed with the construction and upgrade of these islands’ ferry terminals.
The project team has made every effort to avoid impacting nearby vegetation, including trees. However, the design of the new ferry terminals cannot be amended any further. The trees to be removed are in areas that intersect with the construction of the ferry terminals and its amenities and will ultimately be replaced by sheltered waiting areas, providing passengers with better protection from the weather.

- Tree and historic structures removal/relocation guide, both available on this page.
Ferry terminals' screens' artwork designed by Quandamooka artist Shara Delaney, and storyboard info provided by Aunty Sandra Delaney
At the November 2019 open house sessions, the community expressed positive feedback on a proposal to include artwork on the new ferry terminals. Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) was subsequently consulted in the detailed design phase, and several artists were approached to develop artwork designs. Quandamooka artist Shara Delaney provided the final artwork designs, which were then submitted to the designer for inclusion in the ferry terminals' perforated screens. QYAC was also engaged to provide storyboard information for the artwork.
The storyboard information and the final artwork designs are available on this page.
The engagement of QYAC for this artwork is recognition by the project team of the Quandamooka People's strong continuous connection to the land and seas of the Moreton Bay Islands.
