Ports of Auckland stops to pay respects

Ports of Auckland will again turn off its lights and halt operations during the ANZAC Day dawn service between 6:00 and 6:40 on Saturday 25 April.

This year will mark the fifteenth year the Port has turned off over 1,000 Waitematā Seaport lights for the duration of the remembrance service.

“Turning off our lights and stopping work during the service has become a tradition at the Port. It is a small way for us to commemorate those that served our country” says Ports of Auckland Chief Executive, Tony Gibson.

All primary lighting from Fergusson Container Terminal to Captain Cook Wharf will be turned off.
