Open days for City Rail Link

Media release: 14 February 2013 

Auckland Transport is holding three open days for anyone who would like to find out more about the City Rail Link (CRL), and to talk to the project staff.

The open days will be held at three locations: Queen Street, Pitt Street and New North Road.

The CRL is the next advance in passenger rail development for Auckland. Britomart will become a through station as was envisaged when it was built, unblocking the Auckland rail network to allow faster, more frequent and more reliable services.

The CRL will be built in two 3.4km long tunnels up to 45 metres below the city, and provide three new city centre stations before rising to join the existing rail line near the Mt Eden station.

Auckland Transport is seeking a designation over land to build and operate the CRL. Auckland Council has publicly notified the application and people have until 19 March 2013 to make submissions via the council website:

Project Director Chris Meale says the open days will provide Aucklanders with opportunities to get information and to discuss the project prior to submissions closing.

“The City Rail Link is a project that will bring benefits to all of Auckland. It will provide much needed public transport capacity for our city which is expected to house almost two thirds of New Zealand’s growth over the next three decades. I look forward to meeting Aucklanders over the three days to talk to them about what’s planned,” says Mr Meale.
