A new pier is now being used by ferry customers to Gulf Harbour, Hobsonville and Beach Haven, Coromandel and Tiritiri Matangi.
Auckland Transport opened the new facility at Pier 4 at the Downtown Ferry Terminal on 4 November 2015. It replaces the old pier, which was closed at the beginning of September.
Ferry Services Manager Gareth Willis says the new pier is a great improvement on the previous one, which was 16 years old.
Better access for wheelchairs and prams
“There is now a covered gangway which provides shelter for customers from bad weather or the afternoon sun. With the gangway being wider, it also means better access for people using wheelchairs and baby strollers.”
The new pontoon has two different boarding heights, allowing larger vessels to use it, and also additional safety lighting, CCTV cameras and repositioned AT HOP card readers.
