"Monster cruise ships will be able to berth in Auckland if plans by authorities get the go-ahead.

A resource consent for a mooring structure at the end of Queen's Wharf is due to be lodged later this month.

The "mooring dolphin" is sunk into the sea floor off the end of a wharf. It provides another mooring point for long ships without spending much more money on extending a wharf.

Auckland Council organisations Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development, Panuku Development Auckland, Auckland Transport and Ports of Auckland are involved in the plan.

" It's early days and the project is not yet in the design stage, however early estimates suggest it could cost up to $10 million to build the interim infrastructure, which would be in place until there is a new fit-for-purpose cruise infrastructure in Auckland," said Ateed's visitor and external relations general manager Steve Armitage."
