23.11.2020New push for Yarra River water taxis to help reduce traffic congestion
“The Yarra River provides an opportunity to take pressure off our roads by trialling water taxis linking precincts such as Docklands, Southbank, Fishermans Bend and the Arts and Sports destinations, such as Melbourne Olympic Parks.
Make the Yarra the central feature connecting all of our city like other great cities of the world. The Yarra goes from Docklands to South Wharf, Crown Promenade, Federation Square, Birrarung Marr to Melbourne Olympic Parks. It’s a once in a generation opportunity to connect all our workspaces, sporting, arts and outdoor attractions as we approach the summer season. Sweep aside the crippling bureaucracy to make this happen by fast tracking water taxi permits, activating the promenades.” – Martine Letts, CEO, Committee for Melbourne
