The Interislander ferry Aratere was delayed berthing in Wellington this afternoon.

Kiwirail spokesman Kimberly Brady said the Aratere, which was due to berth at 1.30pm, was held up for a short time while the Arahura was moved away from the linkspan where it had been berthed while scheduled maintenance to the span was being carried out.

Strong winds and rough weather had not disrupted any services she said.

The MetService reported this afternoon that northerlies were gusting over 50k.

Ms Brady said strong southerlies were usually more of a problem for the ferries.
