G20: Largest ever Water Police fleet to hit Brisbane

THE LARGEST ever flotilla of police vessels will be patrolling the Brisbane River as part of security arrangements for this weekend’s G20 Summit.

Water Police will maintain a 24 hour patrol of the river throughout the weekend.

They’re reminding the public that a Harbour Master’s Direction is in place and there are restrictions for all vessels on the Brisbane River, between the Story Bridge and the Go Between Bridge, from 6am today until 5pm on Monday.


Maritime Safety Queensland has issued the direction to ensure the safety of all persons on the waterways around the Core Declared Area.

Commercial vessel operators have been consulted throughout the planning process and have provided great support and advice.t.
