Ferry Landing Wharf Restoration Scheme Kicks Off

Divers will be working around the Ferry Landing old stone wharf for several days this week recovering old stone blocks from the sea floor.

This work is the first stage in the restoration project of the wharf, which is one of the oldest working stone wharves in the Southern Hemisphere and is also classified as a Grade One structure by Historic Places Trust.

Guy Banhidii and his team of divers from Dive Revive based out of Whenaukite, will be carrying out the recovery work. This will see stones lost from the original wall recovered from the seafloor. They wlll then be used to rebuild the wharf’s original stone steps, along with sections of missing wall.

A crane will be on-site and a section of the wharf will be cordoned off around where the divers are working.

The actual restoration of stonework on the wharf will take place later in the year.
