Harbour Works

Preparatory work in building the new outer-turning basin and wharf in the Gisborne Harbour Board's multi-thousand pound development scheme is steadily progressing.

A portion of Butler's wall is being removed to make a wider harbour entrance, and a concrete wall along the site of the new wharf in front of the harbour board's workshops is being constructed. The new wharf necessitated the demolition of the Yacht Club's concrete slipway.
