LPC’s Cashin Quay 2 Completed

Reconstruction of the first 57 meter section of the Lyttelton Port of Christchurch (LPC) Cashin Quay 2 wharf has been completed, providing a second container vessel berth at the wharf for the first time since the February 2011 earthquake.

The rebuilding of Cashin Quay 2, following earthquake damage, is being delivered in stages. By late April the new wharf should reach 101 meters. The entire 230 meter long wharf will be completed by the end of the year.

The new Cashin Quay 2 wharf is an important part of planning effectively for future growth and customer service,” said LPC Chief Executive Peter Davie. “It will be a development milestone, increasing capacity for the Container Terminal, boosting the number of berths available and providing increased operational efficiency for customers.

An important part of the construction project has been driving more than 255 piles into the seabed and tying them to the wharf with steel anchor rods. This anchor system gives a high level of seismic resilience, providing a stronger structure than the previous wharf.

The main pile driving of 70 meter piles will be completed this month, while driving the smaller 12 meter long piles by the end of July.
