Going undercover at Devonport Wharf

Going undercover at Devonport Wharf


Auckland Transport wants you to have your say on proposed improvements to the passenger facilities at Devonport Wharf.

The improvements include a new canopy on the western side of the wharf building, removal of the existing run-down canopy and the extension of the roof at the front of the wharf building, a new bus shelter and the redirection of the existing internal pedestrian pathway.

Auckland Transport’s Group Manager, Public Transport, Mark Lambert describes the wharf as a key transport and community hub through which residents, visitors and tourists enter the seaside village.

“Passenger comfort and convenience is a major focus of the proposals, providing better weather protection while also preserving views of the harbour and city. It is important that the wharf's transport facilities are suitable for ferry and bus passengers as well as creating an attractive gateway to Devonport.”

Mr Lambert says the project complements but is separate from the upgrades to Marine Square and the Devonport Wharf which once completed will provide better connections between the main street, the waterfront and the wharf.

Project ambassadors will be handing out information, answering questions and providing feedback forms throughout the consultation which runs through to Friday 6 June. People can also attend a drop in session at the Devonport Wharf onWednesday 28 May between 3pm and 7.30pm.

More information and an online feedback form is available at www.AT.govt.nz/devonportwharf
