‘Party central’ to be $9m temporary structure
“Party Central” for the Rugby World Cup at Queen’s Wharf in Auckland will now be a $9 million, 160m temporary building which will service two cruise ships and cater for up to 8000 people. The Government and Auckland Regional Council, which owns Queen’s Wharf, confirmed their preferred option today following the decision of Auckland Mayors not to fund anything permanent by next year.

The Government will fund the $9m structure, while the ARC will spend about $10m on wharf strengthening and re-sealing.
