The University of Queensland last night received a report that the Brisbane City Council’s Dutton Park ferry terminal at St Lucia had sunk into the Brisbane River.

About 6.50pm a ramp and a pontoon submerged into the river, adjacent to Sir William MacGregor Drive.

The area has been fenced off and the University has not received any reports that there were passengers in the vicinity.

Students, staff and visitors are advised that the Dutton Park ferry will operate for the time being from the University CityCat terminal, near the corner of Blair Drive and Sir William MacGregor Drive.
