Just in time for Easter, the Cape Jervis jetty has been reopened as repair works are now complete.

The Department for Infrastructure and Transport was forced to close the jetty in October 2020, as repairs were completed on Kangaroo Island berthing facilities.

While the jetty was closed, works including the removal of disused fenders, propping and levelling the deck, and bracing various piles to maintain their integrity were completed at the jetty.

As the ferry berthing structure has been inspected, the public can now access the jetty as it was deemed safe to do so.

Sealink was able to keep operating its normal schedule of ferry services while the repairs were undertaken.

The department thanked community members for their patience while the important works were being done.
