Wynyard Crossing Bridge submission extentions
Location: 220 Quay Street, 141-177 Halsey Street, Halsey Wharf and the coastal marine area between Karanga Plaza and Te Wero Island.
Panuku Development Auckland has applied for resource consent to establish a permanent Wynyard Crossing bridge linking Wynyard Precinct with Te Wero Island. This proposal replaces the temporary bridge that has been in place since 2010.
The proposed Wynyard Crossing is a double-leaf bascule bridge along the same alignment as the existing bridge. When closed the bridge is 6m wide and provides for pedestrian and cyclist/scooter access. When open the bridge provides a 36m navigable channel for vessels.
The proposed bridge and its approaches are 148m in length and has a maximum height of 42m (which occurs when the bridge is closed). The operation of the proposed Wynyard Crossing will remain similar to the existing bridge. Construction is anticipated to take up to 12 months, during which time a temporary crossing will be used to provide interim pedestrian access between Wynyard Precinct and Viaduct Harbour Precinct.
Land use consent and regional permits are sought for the proposed structures, their use and occupation of the Coastal Marine Area, the demolition of the existing bridge, the proposed Wynyard Crossing, the proposed temporary crossing and associated works. Panuku are seeking a 35 year term of consent for the Wynyard Crossing bridge. The proposal is a restricted discretionary activity.
