the Waterview Tunnel
Tunnelling first began at Waterview in 2013. The first tunnel was completed in 2014
Alice – the Tunnel Boring Machine - excavated enough dirt to fill 320 Olympic-sized swimming pools and installed more than 24,000 concrete segments to line the two tunnels
Each of Waterview’s two tunnels is 2.4km long – twice the length of the Auckland Harbour Bridge
The tunnels are the longest road tunnels in New Zealand – the Lyttleton road tunnel at 1.97m previously held the record
The Tunnel Boring Machine was specifically designed for the Waterview geology by the German company, Herrenkencht, and manufactured in China.
The Tunnel Boring Machine was 87m long.

74,500m3 of aggregate
Almost 5kms of drainage pipes
104 flame traps.
140,000m2 of paint has been applied – black for the roof, white for the walls
62 ventilation fans
50kms of cable trays to support wiring and other equipment
