City Rail Link chairman looks forward to Monday

Media release- City Rail Link chairman looks forward to Monday

30 June 2017

City Rail Link Ltd, established to deliver the City Rail Link on behalf of its joint sponsors the New Zealand Government and Auckland Council, comes into effect tomorrow.

Chairman Sir Brian Roche said today he was looking forward to delivering the project for Auckland and working with the four CRLL directors to be named next week.

They will bring a wealth of talent and skills with them which will help maintain momentum and progress on the project as it expands from the current 15 per cent of the project works to the whole 3.4km length in the next few years.

“Being part of delivering New Zealand’s largest infrastructure project and its first underground suburban commuter rail is an exciting prospect, he said.
Mr Roche said he saw the management, delivery and completion of the project through CRL Ltd to set best practice for central and local government collaboration on the provision of public infrastructure.

“On a day-to-day basis it will be business as usual for the project with the same staff making it happen.”
