Woolwich Ferry

The Brief

Robert West undertook a feasibility study to support the business case for replacement of existing ferries together with refurbishing and upgrading supporting infrastructure at Woolwich Ferry Terminal. Our services included site investigation, scheme design, obtaining consent for the scheme.

Value-Added Solution

In tandem with this we assisted with strengthening and extending the life of the existing Dolphins at the Ferry Terminal to allow these to remain in service until the new ferries were constructed and other terminal wide schemes for improvement of pedestrian/ vehicle movement around the terminal. 

Final Outcomes

An outline design was provided for the new berths, which comprised floating pontoons with vertical steel restraint piles, a single auto mooring system to maintain operational levels and workboat berths on both sides of the pontoon with new access provision to provide for increased levels of safety.
