Station Pier operations update
Article Date: 28/08/2020
Station Pier remains closed to public access.
This is due to:
- the repair and maintenance program that is underway on the pier
- the continuing restrictions on community movement and activity as part of the State of Emergency in Victoria
- the ongoing operations of the TT-Line Bass Strait ferry that require the isolation of crew members and their working area from the general public.
The operations of TT-Line are continuing as scheduled.
At this time, there are no cruise vessels booked to call at Station Pier until October 2020. Victorian Ports Corporation (Melbourne) (VPCM) is now undertaking the normal program of repair and maintenance.
Compliance with Australian and Victorian government requirements
The operations of vessels in the port of Melbourne are monitored by Australian Border Force and the Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment (DAWE). DAWE is responsible for biosecurity and together with the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services is ensuring that the vessels comply with the applicable Australian and Victorian government legislation, regulations and directions.
VPCM is complying with the normal Australian and Victorian government legislation and regulations.
