CASHIN QUAY 2
The rebuilding of Lyttelton Port of Christchurch’s Cashin Quay 2 wharf signals a step change in the Company’s container service for customers.
The wharf doubles container berth capacity and provides an extra 700 slots of container space behind it.
The wharf is 230 metres long with a 34 metre wide berth and will cater for vessels up to a 14.5 metre draught, making it longer and deeper than the previous structure.
The wharf rebuild is part of LPC’s long term plan for the $1 billion redevelopment of Port services and operations.
