World's first flood resilient ferry terminal opens in Australia

World’s first flood resilient ferry terminal collaboratively designed by Cox Rayner Architects and Aurecon has been opened in Brisbane, Australia.

It is a new technology that will safeguard it from floods and natural disasters, and cope with the Brisbane River’s tidal range. The completed flood resilient ferry terminal at Milton is the first of many to be rolled out along the Brisbane River in 2015.

The design features a pier that provides commuters with panoramic views of the Brisbane River and has been designed to achieve flood resilience and to last for 50 years.

"During a flood, the gangway slides across the pier as the river rises and detaches from the pier. It then swings with the current of the flood waters and is secured the the side of the pontoon to avoid the build-up of debris", ArchitectureAU has written.

  1. This is really something a lot of the residents in Brisbane have been looking forward to. To those who had their homes and storage areas flooded a few years ago, this will hopefully show that things are being done to show resilience towards our freak weather!
