Prime Minister John Key said the takeover of management of the waterfront from Auckland Council was not because the government believed it could do the job better,
but because intervention was essential to get the new facilities and decisions through swiftly.

He said Friday night had made it clear there was a need for overload facilities, which could now be set up on Captain Cook Wharf and possibly Bledisloe Wharf.

''The idea here is that, obviously if more than 12,000 people go down to the Cloud and Queen's Wharf - instead of just having those people mill around and trying to find another place to go in downtown Auckland, there will be a dedicated overflow facility, there will be large screens tvs, toilets, all the way through.''
