Auckland Council has had to delay a planned replacement of the Ti Point wharf due to difficulty in securing necessary materials.
It says if delivery of material is further delayed due to Covid-19, the wharf will remain open over the summer and works will likely start next February.
A Council spokesperson said the intention had been to have the works completed before Christmas.
Council investigations showed “excessive decay” to wharf poles and it was a determined a full replacement was needed.
In the meantime, the wharf has been operating at reduced capacity.
Council says that the project including design and rebuild will be completed for around $620,000.
The new design closely matches the wharf’s current layout, but will see the wharf at a slightly higher elevation to account for future sea level rises.
