Northcote Point ferry services suspended after crew member injured in berthing incident

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

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.

The Warehouse sustainable?

Marcus from Torbay - Long Bay

This is a joke, right?
Did you see that "sponsored add" where The Warehouse advertises themselves as "sustainable" and "easier on our planet"?
Saw it the other day on the telly and now it's here as well.
What a hoax. The warehouse is as sustainable and easy on the planet as a nuclear power plant. 99% what's on there shelves is made in China and they are not known for sustainability. $$$$$$
