iRex Interislander Terminals

The current ferries have seen better days and need to be replaced to service the next generation and contribute to our zero-carbon future. That’s why transforming the Interislander, upgrading the existing service to create a world-class Aotearoa experience is happening.

This includes two new custom-designed ferries and terminals at Kaiwharawhara in Wellington and Waitohi Picton, which will increase capacity and efficiency, and improve the Interislander experience

Through the iReX project, KiwiRail will provide faster, safer, more enjoyable Te Moana o Raukawakawa (Cook Strait) journeys for everyone – and all with less environmental impact.

This investment will turn an ordinary trip into a safe, seamless, and spectacular journey. It will benefit our environment, our communities, and our country. And it will be something we can all enjoy and be proud of, long into the future.

Griffiths Drilling are proud to be part of the journey through the detailed design of the terminals. Our team have drilled multiple deep geotechnical boreholes and CPT tests on land and in the harbour.

This is another great local project that Griffiths are part of to ensure our coolest little capital is a leader as a travel destination.
