Wellington's new ferry terminal will arrive after boats it's being built for

A brand new shared ferry terminal for Wellington won't be built in time for the arrival of Kiwirail's two new supersized boats.

Instead the Greater Wellington Regional Council says an interim terminal will now be built on the current Interislander site at Kaiwharawhara.

In time, the site will be expanded to accommodate rival firm Bluebridge, but whether they will share a terminal is yet to be decided.
