KENNEDY POINT WHARF UPGRADE
Auckland Transport (AT) is upgrading the Kennedy Point wharf and ferry terminal to future proof them for the next 40 - 50 years.
The Kennedy Point wharf structure was constructed in 1974 as part of the development of the terminal for vehicle ferries and has been under the management of a number of legacy organisations since. Auckland Transport has now taken over management of the facility.
These works are designed to repair or replace ageing structures to ensure that the Kennedy Point terminal continues to cater for residents and visitors and to ensure the terminal’s operational capability continues well into the future.
Auckland Transport has worked with a range of organisations, groups and individuals over the past 18 months to ensure this project delivers outcomes that meet the demands of both commercial operators and the wider community.
The main wharf design also includes significant seismic upgrades to ensure the terminal will offer continuity of access and operation for any natural disaster relief operation.
The upgraded western ramp will provide alternative berthage for bulk material vessels. Roading and street lighting improvements to provide a safer facility for all users.
The Stage 1 works are now in full swing and the new ramp is really taking shape. The recent settled weather has allowed HEB Construction to make some excellent progress in constructing the new abutment ramp.
