Return to Service After 96 Hours for Lyttelton Port

Return to Service After 96 Hours

As after February’s damaging earthquakes, Lyttelton Port of Christchurch has again achieved a return to service within 96 hours. The only exception is coal exports.

The latest significant earthquakes have caused further damage to our port infrastructure and facilities, as well as impacting the programme of repair work that was already underway.

It has taken a huge effort by staff and contractors to ensure that vital goods and commodities can move safely through the port. Personally, I wish to acknowledge the efforts of the LPC team, and our contractors, whose aim is to ensure that customers’ and community needs are met. Our priority, as always, has been for the safety of staff and we can advise that fortunately there have been no injuries at the port or at CityDepot.

We would like to thank all our customers for their understanding and patience.
