Scope of Work: 3 off New Brisbane City Cat Gangways
Key Elements: The fabrication of 30mm+ structural aluminium outer truss framework, with intricate aluminium moving internal walkway. These gangways spanned up to 26m weighing over 35-tonne.

DWW were contracted to fabricate 3 off new flood resistant and disabled compliant gangways for Bulimba, Brett’s Wharf and Hawthorne City Cat ferry terminals as part of BCC flood recovery upgrades.

These gangways pushed the limits of aluminium fabrication with the outer truss fabricated from 30mm+ thick aluminium sections, as well as incorporating an intricate, mechanically pivoting internal walkway that corrects position with the tidal changes.
