Hi neighbours. All of the 10,000 free tickets for the City Rail Link open day were snapped up in just one hour when they became available to the public at midday on Wednesday. The open day includes a wander through the tunnel beneath Queen St, between Britomart Station and Albert St. Did you manage to nap some tickets? What are you most excited to see during the open day? Let us know in the comments.
Ferry service provider Fullers 360 asked authorities for an "urgent intervention" on Tuesday after four ferries were cancelled in a week, preventing hundreds of commuters from getting to work on time. It cited out-of-schedule cruise ship berthing in the CBD ferry basin as the reason for the cancellations.
Ports of Auckland, which scheduled the cruise ships' berthing 12 months in advance, rejects this.
"There is no change to the berthing process from previous years, which haven't caused problems," spokesman Matt Ball said. "There has been no late berths to cruise ships."
Fullers 360 CEO Mike Horne responded, suggesting the schedules clashed.
Has your ferry been cancelled recently? What do you think needs to be done?
