Matiatia’s main wharf, the gateway to Waiheke Island and the second busiest ferry terminal after downtown Auckland, will be renewed in 2022. Making sure Waiheke’s ferry infrastructure is maintained for the use that it sees now and into the future is the role of Auckland Transport (AT).
In January 2022, AT will begin work to renew the main wharf at Matiatia. This follows on from the first stage of work completed earlier this year to the old wharf in preparation for this renewal project.
Works will involve the replacement of the pontoon and gangway infrastructure for the southern berth. The final stages of the project will see the completion of the northern berth in 2022.
AT will be building the replacement structure off site to minimise disruption as much as possible and aims to start work on site in January 2022.
For this work to happen safely, AT will need to close the main wharf. They plan to do this at the end of November 2021 and when this happens, all ferry services will be relocated to the old wharf. Temporary shelter, new AT Hop machines and signage will also be installed on the old wharf.
The wharf is monitored regularly. If engineers have any safety concerns, the main wharf will be closed and all ferry services will move to the old wharf.
We will keep you updated on progress and let you know when Fullers360 sailings will need to be relocated.
Thank you for your understanding while this important work is completed.
