Ferry services from Te Onewa Northcote Point Wharf have been suspended only a week after they restarted, following an on-board incident which saw a crew member injured.
On Thursday, February 4 the wharf was opened with a blessing from Ngāti Whātua, with ferry sailing commencing shortly after. Prior to this, the wharf had been closed since June 2018 for a $2.6m upgrade.
However, a crew member was injured during an on-board incident this week, highlighting the need for additional engineering work to improve safety on vessels during berthing.
As a result of the incident, ferry services have been temporarily suspended. It is not yet known when they can re-commence, again.
