Waterfront News


Last week Halsey Street re-opened after a significant transformation. Work on Daldy Street continues and road closures remain in place, but there are still plenty of ways to access the Auckland Fish Market and Seafood Central for all your fresh fish and seafood needs.

Also this week, you may have noticed pedestrian crossings have been installed around the playground and North Wharf area to make it safer for pedestrians to get around.

Thanks to all those who have signed up to our e-newsletter in recent months, we hope you are enjoying staying up to date with everything that happens along the waterfront. The winner of our Merchants of Venice competition running through this period was Aaron Greene. Congratulations and enjoy!
