Northcote Point ferry services suspended after crew member injured in berthing incident

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Ferry services from Te Onewa Northcote Point Wharf have been suspended only a week after they restarted, following an on-board incident which saw a crew member injured.

On Thursday, February 4 the wharf was opened with a blessing from Ngāti Whātua, with ferry sailing commencing shortly after. Prior to this, the wharf had been closed since June 2018 for a $2.6m upgrade.

However, a crew member was injured during an on-board incident this week, highlighting the need for additional engineering work to improve safety on vessels during berthing.

As a result of the incident, ferry services have been temporarily suspended. It is not yet known when they can re-commence, again.

Runaway cat, help please

Yi from Hillcrest

Hi dear neighbors, please let me know if you see our cat Ben. We just adopted him from another family last Sunday and kept him home since. He’s doing very well and getting more confident. He’s supposed to get desexed and chipped next week, so no chip with him yet, no name tag as well. He’s not very familiar with his name yet. But he’s super friendly to people, may come towards you for pat. I forgot to close the door this morning 22/04 10:05 when I took my laundry basket outside, just one second, he saw the opportunity and ran across the street. We live at 12 Hillcrest Avenue, call me 0275290258 if you see him. And if you could keep him and I will fetch him anytime. Thank you so much! My son’s devastated.
