Auckland’s Northcote Point ferry service has resumed, more than two and a half years after the wharf was closed for an upgrade, Stuff reports. The 60-year-old Northcote Point wharf was temporarily closed for health and safety reasons in June 2018, when routine maintenance revealed wooden structural pieces of the wharf had deteriorated. The wharf was due to reopen on January 25, 2021, but was postponed due to the new Covid case in Northland as well as adverse weather and supplier delays. The ferry services will run between the CBD’s Downtown Ferry Terminal, Northcote and Birkenhead and back to the city again, between 6.25am and 11pm, Monday to Friday, with a less frequent timetable at weekends.
