New Zealand Auckland City Tunnel Breakthrough

12-03-2010 04:08 PM CET | Industry, Real Estate & Construction

Press release from: Dreamscape Design

The New Zealand Victoria Park motorway tunnel in Auckland City reached an important milestone when the diggings north and south of Beaumont Street in central Auckland met.

The exciting breakthrough enables people to walk 300 metres within the tunnel trench - from the tunnel’s northern portal, under Beaumont Street and through Victoria Park to Victoria Street West. This signifies the halfway point of construction of the ‘cut and cover’ tunnel structure.

The tunnel is a major component of the $340 million Victoria Park Tunnel project to remove the last remaining traffic bottleneck on the central Auckland motorway network. When it opens in mid-2012, the tunnel will carry three northbound lanes while the existing Victoria Park viaduct will be reconfigured to carry four southbound lanes.

The project will be the first of the Government’s seven Roads of National Significance, identified as essential to the New Zealand’s economic prosperity, to be completed.

There is also talk of a future tunnel from a second harbour crossing underneath the Tank Farm possibly joining the motorway near the southern side of the park.
