We’ll start construction of the eastern walkway and kayak ramp in mid-August 2022 along with the new pontoon and balustrade.
All going to plan, we expect to have the walkway and ramp complete before Christmas.
We’ll look to construct the western walkway, tidal stairs and other features at a later date once further funding becomes available.
Why are you not constructing the western walkway now?
Due to a significant increase in construction costs since the start of Covid-19, we currently do not have funding available to start on the western walkway, which includes tidal stairs, seating areas and other improvements to the look and feel of the wharf.
We have applied for consent for this project, which means when funding does become available we’ll be able to get started straight away on the western walkway.
We’ll apply for funding in the next Long Term Plan and will be looking for other funding opportunities from the Government.
