Port Otago is redeveloping the site and creating a storage and distribution warehouse for port-related activities.
Yesterday, Port Otago civil engineer Andy Pullar said the earthworks component, being undertaken by Fulton Hogan, was about four weeks away from completion.
Building consent had not yet been obtained but that was expected within the next couple of weeks. Calder Stewart will build the warehouse.
The redevelopment had gone ''probably better than expected'' so far, Mr Pullar said.
