City Rail Link open days

Auckland Transport media release

22 August 2014

City Rail Link open days

People interested in the latest news about the City Rail Link (CRL) are welcome at any of three open days being held in the project area over the next week.

The CRL is Auckland’s top transport priority with significant economic development opportunities. It is a 3.4km underground rail connection between Britomart and Mt Eden Station that will double the capacity of the Auckland rail network.

Project director Chris Meale says the open days are a great opportunity for people to meet with CRL staff and discuss recent progress and the upcoming activities planned for the project.

“We’ll have members of the CRL team at each open day who can discuss a range of subjects from engineering to urban design, hydrology to property.”

Information on the regional environmental consents required for issues such as land disturbance, earthworks, ground water take and storm water discharges will be provided at the open days.

Mr Meale says he expects people to be particularly interested in the recent design change incorporating redevelopment of Mt Eden Station rather than building a new Newton Station.

The open days are being held adjacent to the three station locations on both weekdays and a weekend from 27 August to 1 September.

They are:

• Wednesday 27 August at the Pitt Street Methodist Church from 4pm to 7pm

• Saturday 30 August at the Mahatma Gandhi Centre on New North Road from 10am to 2pm

• Monday 1 September at the Town Hall Council Chambers from 4pm to 6pm

“The team is looking forward to meeting people interested in the CRL and discussing the project with them. I hope people take the opportunity to come along.”
