Auckland’s new $42 million downtown ferry terminal will open shortly on Queen’s Wharf. It’s the first big investment in what should be a long-term transformation of waterborne commuting, Stuff reports. Six new ferry berths connect to covered ramps and passenger areas, and the facility has been built ready to accommodate a charging infrastructure for future electric ferries. The new terminal, which opens on July 5th, has been designed for growth over coming decades and is expected to handle a fraction of its capacity of several thousand passengers an hour.
