Kia ora,

We wanted to let you know that early construction work is planned to start on the Kaiwharawhara Wellington ferry terminal redevelopment on 5 September 2022.

National contractor John Fillmore Contracting (JFC) has been selected to undertake this early construction work. They will be preparing Kaiwharawhara Point for the main terminal construction works which will start in the new year, and includes the construction of a new wharf and ferry terminal, in preparation for the arrival of the two, new hybrid-electric ferries from 2025.
This early construction work will see material moved around and flattened and vegetation (all non-native) cleared in preparation for the main works construction.

Early construction work will take place during daylight hours from September through until December. The machinery used by the contractor will stay on site during the early construction work and there will be no change to access in and out of the terminal and no impact on the passengers’ ferry experience. We don’t anticipate there will be any issues with noise.

We are sending a letter directly to residents and businesses in the Kaiwharawhara area, including contact details if they have queries or concerns – or call KiwiRail 0800 801 070 extension 0 (after hours extension 43042).

Here’s a link to the information on our website as well. Please share this information with your residents/members.
