Working to reduce overnight noise from the Fairway
Cruise BerthMaintenance DredgingReclamation

We understand the Fairway is louder than most vessels tied up in the Port, and that it has been heard by several residents in Lyttelton overnight.

The Fairway emits quite a distinctive low frequency noise. We apologise for any inconvenience this noise has given residents, and we have spoken with the Captain and Chief Engineer to look at ways to reduce the noise tonight. The Fairway is running on the minimum possible power, but unfortunately the noise has not reduced significantly.

Tuesday night (August 28) will be the last night the Fairway is in Port, as she will start dredging at first light on Wednesday. Again, we apologise for any disruption this has caused and appreciate your patience.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact LPC Environmental Adviser Jared Pettersson on 021 679 838, or email
