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.

Auckland Transport is proposing to install no-stopping yellow lines at the end of Balmain Road (including at the entrance to Kauri Point Domain), to address concerns from residents regarding parked vehicles blocking access to the road.
The changes will result in the removal of 14 on-street parking spaces.

Consultation is now open until Friday 30 April.
