Ports of Auckland suspending operations from 3pm today due to Cyclone Gabrielle

Ports of Auckland is monitoring the weather forecasts and preparing for the arrival of Cyclone Gabrielle. 

The safety of our people and port infrastructure are our priorities. Please see below for details on changes to operations:

Port operations, including R&D, will be suspended from 1500 today, Sunday 12 February.

  • We will have skeleton crew on-site for emergencies.
  • All cargo vessels have already been sent to anchor or sea as agreed with the Harbour Master (AT) and Ship Masters.
  • The cruise ship Arcadia will remain berthed at Queens East.
  • All other vessels remaining berthed at POAL (barges, fishing boats, navy etc) must have additional lines in place and have people on board or on stand-by.

We expect the pause on operations to continue through to Tuesday morning at the earliest but could continue through to Wednesday. We will be assessing the situation regularly and will continue to update stakeholders through operational advisories.

We encourage all third parties and tenants to monitor the situation and take measures to ensure the safety of your people.
