Merge, non-notable[edit]

Merge Minor ferry wharves in Sydney are insubstantial on a structural level and largely inconsequential to the public transport network as a whole (ferries account of 0.2% of commuter journeys in Sydney). Most importantly, very little information is provided in this article. It is far from clear that more content is forthcoming, the author having exhausted the material readily available from the ferry company itself. The level of detail shown in this stub can (and is) easily accommodated into the article covering all Parramatta River ferry services, Sydney. I would suggest that only wharves meeting the primary criterion for notability (multiple publication) be given their own article. Merging the Parramatta River wharf articles would not lead to a loss of information from Wikipedia. Joestella 15:00, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

I don't really see the need for this. I found the Meadowbank article quite interesting as it stands, so clearly articles can be written. It also looks like no effort has been made to look at offline sources, which (though this is not my area) would be likely to exist in the form of local histories, departmental papers and reports, newspaper articles and such.

Oppose - I will try and look for some sources when I have some time (which is not much at present). I have found a book in my local library previously on the history of the local area which has some info on ferry services in the Northern Districts. There is enough information for most ferry wharves, and with the transport information in the others there should be enough to have an article on each one. JROBBO 07:44, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
Can you at least assert notability? Joestella 12:51, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
Oppose Many of the individual ferry wharves are connected with the local history of the area and there should be information about history and services to warrant individual articles. --Alexxx1 (talk/contribs) 07:07, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Kissing Point Wharf[edit]

I'm not sure how accurate this link is, but Sydney Maritime state that Kissing point wharf is wheelchair accessible. I haven't been there so I cannot clarify this point and therefore will not change what is written at the moment. Can this be verified by anyone, now? Macr237 18:13, 22 July 2007 (UTC)
