I'm a ferry owner!!!


NRMA to purchase Manly Fast Ferry service

THE NRMA has announced plans to purchase the Manly Fast Ferry.
Subject to customary approvals, Australia’s peak road association will take control of the rapid Manly to city service suggesting the “blue highways” are part of its future.

NRMA chairman Tim Trumper said he was committed to investing in more transport solutions in a bid to ease the burden on road networks.
“This significant announcement sends a clear message that while our history was around the automobile our future represents this and much more,” Mr Trumper said.

“Manly Fast Ferry made the area instantly accessible to the rest of Sydney via a comfortable 18 minute boat ride and the benefits to the local economy and tourism are evident along the wharf and the broader northern beaches community.

“Providing the same opportunities to greater Sydney and coastal centres across Australia is a key priority for the NRMA.”

It comes five months after the NRMA grew to become Australia’s second-largest owner, operator of holiday parks, after its acquisition of Australian Tourist Park Management.

It also complements NRMA’s existing portfolio of Thrifty Australia & New Zealand, Travelodge Hotels and the development of its electric vehicle charging network.

Reposting here because this is SEXY AF! Look at that video at the end - this is the sort of integrated transport / high-rise development that ticks all the boxes for me.

Latest designs for the public-private partnership station at Martin Pl, to be an interchange between the new $20bn metro line and the existing Eastern Suburbs / Illawarra line.
