First concrete pour on Cruise Berth
Channel DeepeningMaintenance DredgingReclamation

Excellent progress is being made on New Zealand's first purpose-built cruise berth, with well over half of the main wharf piles now successfully driven, and work has started on the construction of the main wharf deck.

The construction of the main wharf deck involves a number of concrete pours. The first major concrete pour is planned to take place on Thursday, October 10, 2019, and subsequent pours will take place every few weeks until mid-2020. This work will start between 3 am and 5 am to ensure operations run efficiently.

Noise Impacts:

350 cubic metres of concrete is needed for this first concrete pour, which means concrete trucks will be travelling to Lyttelton.

There may be some noise impact during this time.
