Excellent progress is being made on the Te Awaparahi Bay reclamation, with two split hopper barges working to dump hardfill into the second phase of the project.

Hard fill material from our Gollan's Bay quarry is being taken by truck onto a barge, and from there moved by excavator to a split hopper barge which places the rock into the reclamation area.

This process is repeated at least 7 to 9 times a day, as part of the second stage of the reclamation project.

The first 10ha of the reclamation has already been completed, this is the second stage, creating an additional 6ha.
