    I spoke to a guy from the NSRi last week. Construction is due to start in like 2 months. South pier is going to be closed off as well, they are going to be making a cement depot there for all the construction.

    I'm very sure you will still see the same bio diversity.

    The reason there are so many fish there is because it offers shelter, and the new pier will do the same thing.

    Just for info...the pier will be demolished (without explosives) and the new pier will be rebuilt, using the material recovered from the existing pier, about 100m closer to Vetchs. There is now security on site and there is no longer access to north pier (even across the front of the sand bypass hopper). Work is expected to start within the next month.
