Northcote Point wharf will reopen to the public on Monday and the ferry will be running again for the first time in two years.

The wharf has been renamed to Te Onewa Northcote Point, making it the first dual-named wharf on Auckland's ferry network.

It was closed in 2018 due to structural deterioration- the wooden structure under the deck had to be either repaired or replaced.

The $2.6 million work to renew the 60-year-old pier started in July and finished at the end of the year under budget despite the disruption caused by Covid-19.

Auckland Transport also upgraded the shelter for ferry users, installed new seating, improved security and lighting at the quay.

Hi Auckland neighbours,

A leading coronavirus expert is urging the Government to make scanning mandatory at such potential "super-spreader" venues as bars and nightclubs.

The pleas follow figures revealing daily use of the Covid Tracer app has plummeted to a fifth of its peak.

Last Monday, a total of 515,759 scans were recorded nationwide, down from the high of 2.5 million on September 4.

Epidemiologist Dr Michael Baker said the next six months would be a “very dangerous” time for the country with a high risk of an outbreak while waiting for the vaccine roll-out in April.

Pressure washed pathways can lower the risk of slip related falls

Nigel from CLEAN.NZ

According to ACC, falls are the most common way kiwis injure themselves with most injuries occurring at home and a large portion due to feet slipping or skidding. Fortunately, many of these types of accidents can be prevented by keeping walking surfaces free of dirt, mold, moss, and other … View moreAccording to ACC, falls are the most common way kiwis injure themselves with most injuries occurring at home and a large portion due to feet slipping or skidding. Fortunately, many of these types of accidents can be prevented by keeping walking surfaces free of dirt, mold, moss, and other substances that tend to reduce traction, particularly when combined with water.

In a recently completed Devonport job, a beautiful north-facing staircase and pathways had become slippery with dirt and mold and were definitely tricky when wet. Exactly the kind of condition leading to this common injury. The likelihood of slipping has been reduced massively after a couple of hours of careful eco-friendly pressure-washing.

There’s more than one win! Clean surfaces are often more pleasing aesthetically - so, in addition to safety, there’s that as well 😊.
