Downtown Ferry Terminal maintenance and improvements Downtown Ferry Terminal maintenance and improvements

A number of projects will get underway in 2022 at the Downtown Ferry Terminal. They represent on-going investment in our public transport network, and its associated facilities. Much of this work is routine maintenance and will be completed without affecting customer experiences. However, some work requires demolition and construction which may be noisy. Find out more below.

Inside the Downtown Ferry Terminal

Upgrade of existing toilet facilities and adjoining retail space.

These projects are located within the Downtown Ferry Terminal, behind the ticket gates, near the departure point for Devonport, Bayswater, Birkenhead and Pine Harbour ferries.

The projects will:

  • Improve the toilets and increase capacity for customers
  • Provide a new and improved retail offering

The works are due to start from the 24 January and will be completed by September 2022.

For the duration of the works, temporary public toilets will be located outside the terminal building, in the location indicated on the map below.

Customers are advised that, as the temporary toilets are located on the public side of the terminal, they should access them before passing through the ticket gates.

Above the Pier

Heritage canopy restoration

There is a heritage listed canopy located within the Downtown Ferry Terminal. To ensure that it remains an asset for Aucklanders, we will be undertaking some restoration work. 

This work will start in April 2022 and is expected to take six months to complete.

Waterproofing

Some areas of the roofs over the terminal building require waterproofing. This means renewing seals rather than replacing the roofs, and the impact on customers will be minimal. The waterproofing will ensure the terminal building is fit for purpose for many years to come.

This work will start in January 2022 and is expected to take three months to complete.

Under the Downtown Ferry Terminal

Cable containment and services

Under the terminal building some services will be tidied by installing new cable trays. This will make it easier and safer to undertake future maintenance work. Some concrete drilling will be required to install the cable trays. This will create a limited amount of noise.

This work is expected to start in February 2022 and is expected to take five months to complete.

Concrete repairs

Underneath Piers 1 and 2 some repairs are required to the concrete piles. The work is preventative and the piers will be open for use throughout. This work will, however, be noisy as some concrete will need to be removed before the repairs are completed.

This work is expected to start in April 2022 and is expected to take five months to complete.
