Work starts on cruise ship berth

Preparation work is underway for the construction of the Port’s new cruise berth – part of LPC’s long-term plan to serve the region’s future needs.

The next phase of works will see the pile driving begin in early July. Piling work will be intermittent, occur Monday to Saturday, and is expected to be completed by the 2020/2021 cruise season.

The piling will be closer to Lyttelton township than that done during the construction of the Cashin Quay 2 wharf in 2014/15. Therefore the piling noise will be more widely heard.

We understand the noise from pile driving will be an inconvenience to local residents. While the level of noise cannot be effectively mitigated, residents will be able to view regular updates to the planned piling times on LPC’s harbour watch website www.lpcharbourwatch.co.nz.

We are mindful of the effect underwater noise from piling can have on dolphins. This was a key reason for the wharf being redesigned during the past few months. Reducing the size of the wharf has significantly reduced underwater noise levels. A marine piling management plan will be in place to further manage potential risks to Hector’s dolphins from the piling activities.

The new design does not require resource consent to construct the wharf, as it is within the regulations of the Lyttelton Port Recovery Plan.
We have applied for consent to allow the larger cruise ships to moor at the wharf, and to undertake minor dredging.

A ‘Port Talk’ will be held on Saturday 30 June (10am – 1pm) at LPC’s ‘Port Talk’ site corner of Oxford and London Streets in Lyttelton.
