Lifelines

CentrePort connects State Highway 1 between the North and South Islands and provides an export connection to the rest of the world.

In the event of an emergency, fuel facilitated through CentrePort assets would be essential to supply rescue equipment in the immediate response. In an earthquake, ferries would also play an important part in the response, as a key supply chain due to the expected loss of roading.

The Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO) is developing a resilience plan for Wellington in the event of an emergency. Central government, through the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management is preparing a national level response plan.

CentrePort participates in the WREMO and national work, including running workshops on being more proactive and planning reviews. CentrePort is represented at various forums, with Anthony Delaney, General Manager Regeneration, covering the infrastructural approach and Andrew Steele, General Manager of Ferries and Bulk, covering operations.
