Cruise Weekly - - Contents -

AUCK­LAND Coun­cil’s con­tro­ver­sial Queens Wharf cruise ship ex­ten­sion has been canned, as de­tailed last week in an emer­gency bud­get.

The pro­posed moor­ing fa­cil­ity, or “dol­phin”, was de­signed for mega ships com­ing to the city.

De­spite an on­go­ing chal­lenge to the Wharf be­ing heard be­fore the En­vi­ron­ment Court, and an ap­peal lodged by op­po­nents led by Ur­ban Auck­land, the plan will not pro­ceed.

A court ini­tially paused the ac­tion in Dec.
