Oil Berth update November
Channel DeepeningCruise BerthMaintenance DredgingReclamation

We're making great progress to repair and strengthen LPC's oil berth.

The berth was badly damaged during the Christchurch earthquakes, and work to strengthen the berth is underway and will be completed by mid-2020.

Fulton Hogan is the contractor working onsite, and they will soon start repairs to the western bollard of the oil berth which requires some excavation and sheet piling work.

Excavation around the bollard is required to access the foundation, and sheet piles are needed to prevent groundwater flowing into the excavation.

When are we doing it? 

Repairs to the western bollard require excavation work and approximately 60 steel sheet piles to be installed from December 2. This work will take between 2-3 weeks to complete. Piling will only occur between the hours of 8.00 am and 6 pm Monday to Saturday.
