Opotiki Harbour Construction Passes The Halfway


Construction in Ōpōtiki of one of the largest pieces of non-roading infrastructure seen in New Zealand in decades has now reached the halfway mark, with the Bay of Plenty town’s Mayor, Lyn Riesterer, describing progress as “outstanding.”

The $100 million redevelopment will re-establish the Ōpōtiki harbour, build two training walls and open a new harbour entrance while closing the existing one.

Multiple developments are planned in conjunction with the harbour development, including wharf and processing plants. There is also a proposed marina, residential development and improved public spaces.
