Upgrade the Northcote Point Ferry Terminal!
The Board of Auckland Transport (AT) will decide what to do with the wharf this November, and I’m asking you to sign this petition calling on AT to invest in an all-weather ferry wharf upgrade at Northcote Point.
AT have released the options they will chose from:
- Close the facility permanently
- Close the facility temporarily, pending the construction of SeaPath and SkyPath, then undertake any repairs or improvements in association with those projects
- Repair the wharf
- Build a new, all-weather facility
Recently the Northcote Point Ferry Wharf has been closed due to some structural damage to the wharf. AT has analysed the various options and broadly speaking will either repair the wharf to its normal state or invest in a new all-weather wharf to ensure consistency of service throughout the year.
I believe there’s huge potential for ferries to provide a more viable transport option for Northcote residents and reduce congestion on our roads. Residents in Northcote have told me loud and clear that a key barrier to them accessing the Northcote Point Ferry is a lack of consistent service, due to the current positioning of the wharf. Upgrading and slightly repositioning the wharf will allow ferries to consistently dock at the terminal, providing a more reliable service well into the future.
By signing this petition, you will send a strong message to Auckland Transport that you want more investment in our ferries and that you want a more consistent and reliable service at Northcote Point. As your local MP, I will present this petition to AT along with a strong business case for why the all-weather upgrade should go ahead.
Many thanks for your support.
MP for Northcote
