KARRAGARRA JETTY TERMINAL TAKING SHAPE; THE LAST OF THE FOUR! The new Karragarra Jetty Terminal is taking shape. It is the fourth of the island jetties that are part of a $47 million island jetty replacement program for all four Southern Moreton Bay Islands. The major project is being funded by the Queensland State Government and the Redland City Council. The new jetties are already in place at Russell and Macleay Islands. They are in various forms of construction, with much more work required at Russell Island due to the distance to reach deeper waters. The Macleay Island terminal was put in place about several weeks ago and is getting close to completion The Lamb Island terminal has been formed and moved to Thornlands for additional fitting out and moving to its Lamb Island berth. State Member for Redlands, Kim Richards, says the new Karragarra Ferry Terminal is currently under construction. Both the Karragarra and Lamb Island terminals are smaller than those at Russell and Macleay Islands, for obvious reasons. Kim Richards told The Friendly Bay Islander: “Piling work is continuing at Karragarra Island. “Jetty construction works are well underway with the first of the precast jetty headstocks and precast planks and walkway already installed. “Fabrication of the pontoons completed at the The Jetty Specialist factory and will be transported to the islands in coming weeks,” Kim Richards said.
