Redevelopment plans for the downtown ferry basin are well underway with Auckland Transport (AT) seeking consent for six new ferry berths at Queens Wharf.

The new berths will improve the efficiency of vessels moving in and out of the ferry basin, as well as enhancing navigational safety, according to an AT spokesperson.
