America's Cup preparations - new work underway in the Viaduct
As part of the city's preparations for hosting the America's Cup in 2021, the following work is now underway on Hobson Wharf and the outer Viaduct Harbour:
- Dredging of the approach channel to the outer Viaduct Harbour. Barges are being used to move the dredged material for disposal.
- Hobson Wharf extension work. This began on 14 January and involves a barge and crane being used to carry out piling work - due to finish around July 2019. The top deck will be finished and ready for handover a few months later.
