Northcote Point wharf has been closed since June 2018, when routine maintenance inspections found its wooden structure had deteriorated. A $2.6 million project to restore the popular Auckland ferry wharf, which used to facilitate 155 trips a day, will be finished by the end of the year, after a delay in 2019 due to lack of finances. Auckland Transport (AT) says, ”While we carry out repair works, we are taking the opportunity to provide ferry users with better shelter, new seating and improved lighting.”
