Quay Street strengthening

About the project

To protect Quay Street from potential earthquake damage, we need to strengthen the seawall between Princes Street and Marsden Wharf.

This will be the first step in making Quay Street into a vibrant, attractive public space.

This project is a part of the Downtown Programme. For more information, see the Auckland Transport Downtown Programme page.

What's involved

The works will happen in stages:

  • Queens Wharf to Marsden Wharf (April 2019 - April 2020)
  • Princes Wharf (May 2019 - November 2019)
  • Ferry Basin (September 2019 - January 2020)
  • Ferry Building (January 2020 - April 2020)


This project is currently in the planning stage.

Construction is planned from early 2019 - late 2020.
