Interislander ferry arrivals terminal in Wellington closes because of earthquake risk

The Interislander ferry's arrivals terminal in Wellington has been closed due to earthquake risk.

From today, ferry passengers arriving in Wellington will be rerouted through the departures hall, KiwiRail said in a statement.

There will be little impact for passengers, who will now arrive through the terminal forecourt and the departures hall, which has a higher earthquake safety standard, KiwiRail said.

Signs and staff will be in place to direct passengers until the issue has been resolved.
