The NZ Herald report that the Ports of Auckland is not contributing to a proposed $49.2 million cruise ship terminal on Queens Wharf even though it will use the wharf at minimal or no cost and collect the berthage fees.

Ports managing director Jens Madsen said the company – which sold the Wharf for $40 million to the Government and Auckland Regional Council – was making a positive contribution to ensuring the wharf was a success. In return for Ports of Auckland’s use of the cruise ship terminal and part of Queens Wharf on cruise ship days, Ports of Auckland have taken on the future obligation to maintain the under-wharf structure and take responsibility for dredging and berth maintenance.

If the Queens Wharf terminal is built as part of a $97 million option for the wharf, the new Auckland Council will be responsible for the surface of the wharf and any buildings.
