Marine piling for cruise berth about to begin
Channel DeepeningMaintenance DredgingReclamation

With marine piling on the cruise berth project starting soon, we have finalised our Marine Mammal Management Plan (MMMP). This plan sets out how Lyttelton Port Company and the contractor involved will manage potential noise effects on marine mammals, particularly Hector’s Dolphins.

The plan is a result of a collaboration with some of New Zealand's leading marine mammal scientists, marine acousticians and underwater noise modelling specialists.

We've also been fortunate to have input from the Department of Conservation on the plan. Their review and advice has been greatly appreciated.

You can read a copy of the plan here. If you have any questions please get in touch at
