Auckland Transport (AT) are making changes at Waiheke, which include an upgrade of the main wharf at Matiatia in 2021.
As part of their planning for this, AT need to alter the old wharf so that it can be used as a substitute berthing location for Waiheke ferries during possible temporary closures at the main wharf.
Work on the old wharf will begin in mid-October 2020 to ensure it is ready for next year’s renewal work. The work is expected to be finished by mid-December 2020 in time for the peak summer season.
In a separate project, the construction of new toilets at the Matiatia ferry terminal will start on site in early November. Toilets will be available throughout.

During the on-site construction period, there may be times when ferry services need to be redirected to the old wharf at Matiatia. As part of planning for this, AT have identified some amendments that are required to the old wharf at Matiatia so that it can be used as a substitute berthing location for Waiheke ferries during the temporary outages at the main wharf.
In a separate project, starting in November 2020, AT will be expanding the number of toilets available to users of the Matiatia ferry terminal. The number will grow from seven to 12 toilets and two to four urinals.
The northern side of the old wharf will remain available for public use throughout the renewal work.
