In 2015 we all helped stop the Port’s 90m wharf extensions. Now Auckland Council wants to add a massive 90m concrete and steel mooring extension to Queens Wharf.
They’re about to spend $10 million of your money pouring more concrete into our harbour to create two massive structures with connecting gangways just to dock a few oversized, foreign-owned cruise ships that arrive in the morning and are gone by the afternoon.
There are viable alternatives to dock the oversized cruise ships. Existing port facilities have been used before for the big ships, so let’s use them again.
Help save our harbour for future generations and stop Auckland Council selling it off for a few extra dollars, most of which will end up in the pockets of foreign-owned shipping corporations.
