The two shortlisted options are in Firth of Thames and the Manukau Harbour.

Northland has been ruled out as too expensive.

But any new port will not come cheap - estimates start at $4 billion - and will only come after the current site runs out of space.

The study's report, on how best the port can grow to meet demand, will be released on Friday at noon as part of the agenda for next week's Auckland Development Committee meeting.
