POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
The Link Alliance welcome the Women’s Infrastructure Network NZ to a site visit of the Mt Eden City Rail Link construction site.
The City Rail Link (CRL) is a game-changer for Auckland and the Link Alliance’s construction of it is similarly impressive. The CRL is a 3.45km twin-tunnel underground rail link up to 42 metres below Auckland’s city centre. It will transform the downtown Britomart Transport Centre into a two-way through-station that better connects the Auckland rail network and allows the rail network to at least double rail capacity. It includes a redeveloped Mt Eden Station, where the CRL connects with the North Auckland (Western Line) and two new underground stations.
The Link Alliance’s Mt Eden station site is complex with extensive construction activities underway. Within the 9-hectare site, buildings have been demolished and the heavy civil works is well underway to form the redeveloped Mt Eden station and the City Rail Link tunnel approaches. It is for this reason that we need to limit numbers to 20 in order to protect everyone’s safety. Full PPE (long sleeve shirt and pants, steel capped and lace-up shoes, hardhat with chin strap, high vis vest, safety glasses and gloves) is required for the site tour.
Please Note: The site tour will require participants to walk across uneven ground for extended periods and to gain access to areas via ladders and scaffolding. This can be tiring and makes areas inaccessible for some. Please indicate if you have any illness or accessibility requirement that may inhibit your access across the site.
This is the first of what the Link Alliance hopes to be many site visits for the Women’s Infrastructure Network NZ. If you cannot attend this one, please endeavour to join the next.
