LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY - Closed ePetition Details

Save The Manly Ferries

Petitioner: Cr Candy Bingham | Member: Minns, Chris | No. of Signatories: 22,074 | Date closed: 15/02/2021
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly, the citizens of the Northern Beaches and visitors to Manly from all across New South Wales draw to your attention the proposal by the NSW Government to phase out in early 2021, our world-famous double-ended 1100 passenger Freshwater-class Manly Ferries. The proposal is to replace them with 400 passenger commuter-style Emerald class ferries. Large double-ended ferries have served Manly since 1850 and are a major Sydney tourist attraction. The fleet must be kept in service. We respectfully petition the Assembly to: 1. Cancel the decision to replace the heritage-style Freshwater Manly Ferries 2. Proceed with the scheduled maintenance program for these ferries 3. Develop a Fleet Replacement Plan which includes double-ended 1000+ passenger ferries on the F1 Manly route
