Hop on board Hopo

Commuting by water is now a reality, with the Gold Coast’s first ferry service launched today.Mayor Tom Tate together with operator Ferry I announced the new five-stop service, named Hopo, would commence this Sunday, 8 December. “This new service, part of our 2031 Transport Strategy, offers a unique travel experience to our residents and visitors, giving them greater access to our waterways and popular destinations,” said Mayor Tate.“Travelling by water is a great way to help reduce traffic on our roads and to enjoy the Gold Coast’s beautiful waterways – it’s a win-win.”Mayor Tate said it’s hoped the service will carry up to 700 passengers each week.  “Our transport demands are growing and changing, and the ferries are one way we’re diversifying our transport network to ensure the Gold Coast remains a connected city.“During and after the trial, we’ll work with the operator and partners to assess the success of the service.” The two year trial service will stop at five popular waterfront precincts: Appel Park at Surfers Paradise, HOTA at Surfers Paradise, Marina Mirage at Main Beach, Broadwater Parklands at Southport and Sea World at Main Beach. If the trial is successful, additional stops may be considered.Ferry I General Manager Anthony Ardern said it was important the community get behind the service so it can become a permanent feature of the city’s public transport network.“Passengers will be able to buy a day ticket to hop on and off as much as they want in the space of a day, or a single destination ticket for just $4,” Mr Ardern said. “The ferry will stop approximately every hour, with one ferry heading upstream and the other heading downstream.

Drought affects Toowoomba Region’s road maintenance program

The prolonged drought is forcing Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) to be resourceful in a bid to complete its scheduled road construction and maintenance program, particularly in the region’s southern districts. “The lack of easily accessible water, particularly around Cambooya, Greenmount, Clifton, Millmerran and Leyburn, has forced a re-think on how Council sources water for our road construction and maintenance works,” Cr Taylor said. “The stresses on the southern town supplies means, that where possible, these must be kept for business and residential use.
