Wynyard Wharf repairs

The wharf is being repaired, and the platforms for the America's Cup bases are being built.

Underway

Earthworks at Wynyard Point

As a part of the preparations for the America's Cup, we will be constructing platforms for each of the syndicate bases.

There will be earthworks in the area, which will mean that there will be road and lane closures, reduced access to some areas and potentially some dust and noise.

We will establish a link road to minimise the impact on traffic. We will also be carefully monitoring the noise, and will take steps to reduce it when it goes over the legal limit.
