Northcote Wharf Upgrade Underway

John Gillon from John Gillon - Kaipatiki Local Board

On Thursday morning I was privileged to attend the whakatau and blessing by Mana Whenua to mark the beginning of the Northcote Wharf renewal project.
Work will now get underway on repairing and upgrading the wharf, with it expected to be completed by the end of the year (weather dependent).
During the construction, material for the new wharf will be stored at Birkenhead Wharf and barged across to Northcote Point.
This brings to a close the very long advocacy from elected members for the Northcote Wharf to be upgraded and reopened.
Thankyou to everyone who has been involved with progressing the project to this point.

Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.
