Garden Island Stage 1 Infrastructure Recovery Project
The aim of Stage One was to address significant condition, capacity and compliance issues with two existing wharves at Garden Island (East), Sydney, New South Wales. These wharves are referred to as the Cruiser Wharf and the Oil Wharf. The aim was to demolish the Cruiser and Oil wharves and build a new wharf in a revised alignment in their place and also extend an adjoining wharf to limit the new realigned wharf's protrusion.
