Lyttelton Tunnel party this Sunday morning, 31 August
Lyttelton Tunnel party this Sunday morning, 31
August, 9.30 am to 12.30 pm
It isn’t everyday a
road tunnel authority tells people to grab a gold coin and
walk, cycle or skateboard through a two kilometre tunnel,
normally restricted to cars and trucks.
So here is your
chance – this Sunday morning. The Lyttelton Road Tunnel
party is to celebrate the tunnel’s 50 years resilient
existence, the opening of the new tunnel control building
and also SCIRT’s twin highway bridges over Horotane Valley
on the main road.
If you are able to remind
your listeners/ readers/ associates that the tunnel won’t
be available for driving through Sunday morning, that would
be very helpful.
