REDLAND City Council will get $10.25million from the State Government to upgrade and dredge the city’s ferry terminals at Toondah Harbour and Victoria Point.

Marine Infrastructure Minister Craig Wallace made the announcement yesterday and said the allocation included $6million for dredging at both terminals over the next two years.

Mr Wallace said the rest of the money, $4.25 million, would meet half the cost of replacing the council-owned Coochiemudlo Island ferry terminal and fully pay for an upgrade of the Victoria Point jetty.

Under the deal, Redland City Council would own and manage the Victoria Point and Coochiemudlo Island ferry terminals, which would both be upgraded to meet disabled access standards, Mr Wallace said.
