No doubt you are aware of some of the issues around the port following the earthquakes, but possibly not some of the detail. There has been damage to wharves and the container storage reclamation, on which there are unstable stacks of empty containers. A container stacking machine is submerged near the corner of the reclamation.
Until further notice, a restricted area for all recreational and unauthorised vessels is being put in place from Kings Wharf Pile Light to 200m east of Thorndon Pile light and across to the Kaiwharawhara Stream. Some marks and boom will be put in place shortly to demark parts of this area.
