As a 2nd job, a new pontoon was added to allow better access for ferry passengers, and aluminium wheelchair compliant ramps were installed to access this pontoon. New piles and aluminium jetty access platforms were added to allow this, and we also did some modifications to the existing barge ramp fender piles while we were there. A new jetty shelter was also prefabricated and installed.
