Exciting step for CRL as Tunnel Boring Machine launched

Completing Auckland’s City Rail Link has taken an exciting step forward today with the official launch of the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM), Dame Whina Cooper, at the project’s Mt Eden site.

Final checks are now underway before the TBM starts cutting into Auckland soil in mid-May, excavating the first of the two rail tunnels that will completely change the way people can travel around Auckland.

Transport Minister Michael Wood described the launch as an “exciting milestone” for New Zealand’s largest-ever transport infrastructure project – “one that is helping our economic recovery and supporting jobs," he says.   

More new apartments plus shops for central Christchurch's east frame

Apartments, townhouses, penthouses and shops – the next block in central Christchurch’s east frame will be the tallest yet and the first on Manchester St.

Fletcher Living has started groundworks for the block, which is the next stage of the Crown-led east frame housing project forming part of the city’s earthquake rebuild.

The latest stage includes seven buildings up to five storeys high, on a site bordered by Cashel, Manchester and Hereford streets and Huanui Ln.

There will be 63 homes plus a row of small shops at street level.
