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.

Two web stories for background.. Instructions on stress-free ways to get there (eg bus or cycle) or where to park are included in these also.
