WIN Auckland: CRL Live Virtual Tour


Registration is only available for current members.

Event Details

Join WIN Auckland and the Link Alliance team for the first live, virtual tour of the City Rail Link (CRL) project. We will tour areas of the CRL’s Mt Eden construction site, including the future redeveloped station and the tunnel boring machine (TBM) while it is being re-assembled. This virtual event is open for registration to all WIN members across NZ. The CRL is the largest transport infrastructure project ever to be undertaken in New Zealand. Once complete, it will be a 3.45km twin-tunnel underground rail link up to 42 metres below the city centre that will transform the downtown Britomart Transport Centre into a two-way through-station that better connects the city’s rail network.

CRL’s Link Alliance are delivering the project’s main works which includes the construction of two new stations, Aotea and Karangahape, redevelopment of the Mt Eden Station and building twin tunnels between Mt Eden and Aotea.  Link Alliance are an internationally experienced team with Vinci, Downer New Zealand and Soletanche Bachy as the alliance’s constructors and WSP, 
AECOM and Tonkin + Taylor as the designers. 

While the motu (country) continues to feel the impacts of the Covid Omicron outbreak, Link Alliance continue making significant progress towards this important infrastructure project. This event is an opportunity to hear and see first-hand from people contributing to various aspects of the CRL.

This tour will be hosted virtually from the Mt Eden construction site and will include sights of the TBM, named Dame Whina Cooper after the ground-breaking activist. You can learn more about the TBM and its namesake at
