Thorndon Wharf is the main container terminal of the Wellington commercial port, owned and operated by CentrePort Ltd. The wharf was constructed in two phases between the late 1960’s and the early 1970’s directly adjacent to the then newly reclaimed port land. The wharf structure is 584m long and 22m wide, consisting of precast piles and in-situ placed beam structures, topped by precast slab panels and levelled off with approximately 500mm of fill and an asphalt surface.
