Wellington Scoop

Quake risk at ferry terminal; passengers to arrive through departures area

Press Release – KiwiRail
As from today, Interislander ferry passengers arriving in Wellington will be rerouted through the Departures Hall, following new information – assessments confirm the Arrivals Terminal is below acceptable earthquake risk levels, and it will not be used until further assessment and remediation has occurred.

KiwiRail and building owner CentrePort are working together to resolve this as soon as possible.

There will be little impact for passengers, who will now arrive via terminal forecourt areas and the Departures Hall which has a higher earthquake safety standard. Signage and staff will direct passengers until further assessment and remediation has occurred.

We apologise for the disruption, but safety is our priority. We thank passengers for your patience.

    The insanity continues… in a major earthquake the departure area would not be ” 100% earthquake proof or safe” .
    Nothing would and that’s one of the reasons why this type of thinking that birthed the erroneous new code is so silly.
