Does anyone see the irony that the very group Auckland yachties supported in their droves to block Ports of Auckland extending the wharves now stands between them and holding the Americas Cup in Auckland?


Anyway, Halsey Wharf will not be extended. Auckland Council is broke and can't drop $100m on a project with no assured payback even if it could be built in 2-3 years which I think is impossible. The government is already facing the 10 billion hole Joyce warned about. https://www.stuff.co...an-labours-plan


The only real option is to press ahead with the Westhaven development which is already planned, or use existing wharves (unlikely), or the best option imo, bring in large barges with cranes.


So what you are saying then is its going to be in Italy somewhere.
