If the dolphins were put in without the walkways at least we could sail around them when there's no cruise boats there, the walkways are just to make it easy for Ports to use them.

They run a friggin port for f**ks sake, get in a damn boat & go out there to use it.

The cruise ships will already have tugs on hand to park them... so they already have a boat handy to drop someone onto the dolphin 10mins before the ship arrives..

Far too dangerous to get on and off a boat...

There are automated systems that have everything on the seabed unless wanted. Up and down with the push of a button. Everything the council and government talk in the way of green says they would prioritise a system like this.

 

But they won't, the 1/2 arsed bunch of dickheads.

POAL ACC Panuku AT have all had a hand in the planning fiasco that the harbour is now very much the poorer for.

During the discussions to secure Westhaven Marina back into public ownership a overarching waterfront governance body was mooted to no avail.

The whole harbour is fast becoming a piecemeal mess.

Have a close look at Councils decision to site the AC bases.

They are battle weary of the whole western reclamation tank farm area.

The failed court action to have Mobil remediate the heavily polluted tank farm area has the Council shouldering the entire costs.

The present bulk storage leaseholder has Council over the barrel regarding vacating the area sooner rather than later.

So much so that Council did not communicate with them at all regarding the AC base planning options.

YNZ are too busy trying to negotiate a good deal on Council controlled land for the high performance center. Can't see them doing any advocacy for their constituents that may also rock the boat with regards to acquiring themselves the new gilded HQ.

There is no Mooring Dolphin class at the Olympics so they have no interest.
