New wharf for Lyttelton

Construction of Lyttelton’s new wharf has begun with a daylong concrete pour involving 75 trucks. Cashin Quay 2 at the container wharf had 375 cubic metres of concrete poured yesterday – the largest since the early 1990s. Piles will be driven about 60 metres into the harbour bed at a pace of one every 36 hours. Seventy-one piles will be required for the first stage, which is due to be completed by mid-December, with 255 piles required in all. Lyttelton Port of Christchurch chief executive Peter Davie said the wharf would significantly increase both terminal and berth capacities. The 230m-long Cashin Quay 2 wharf is expected to be finished by the end of 2015.
