Major Lyttelton Port Development Starts

The largest concrete pour at Lyttelton Port since the early 1990’s started yesterday at Cashin Quay 2 wharf. 

About 375 cm of concrete is being poured by 75 trucks to form the first 11 m of the new Cashin Quay 2 wharf deck at the Container Terminal. The concrete area being poured today will be 1 m thick and 34 m wide.

The formwork which contains the concrete will be removed in 7 days, with the concrete taking about 28 days to fully cure.

Image of the concrete pour along Cashin Quay 2 at Lyttelton PortCashin Quay 2 wharf will be delivered in stages with the aim of completing the first 57 m section by mid-December 2014, allowing increased berthing options. When the rebuild of the wharf is finished in the last quarter of 2015 it will be 230 m long and be a deeper, stronger and more resilient structure.

The land reclamation operation is part of the major port development, in part designed to allow the inner harbor to become people friendly.

Once complete, the Cashin Quay 2 wharf will provide significantly increased capacity for the Terminal and boost berth capacity,” said Peter Davie LPC Chief Executive. “This rebuild is a key project for the Port and will increase operational efficiency.

“It is also an important step in expanding the Port to meet demands for future growth and enhance customer service levels.”

Piling should be completed this week for the first 57 m of the wharf, with 71 piles in this first section driven to an approximate depth of 60 m into the harbor bed. In total, 255 piles will be driven into the harbor bed for the new Cashin Quay 2 wharf.
