The City Rail Link (CRL) is New Zealand’s largest infrastructure project and will provide a better connection between the West and central city. KiwiRail is working closely with CRL and Auckland Transport to ensure successful delivery.
As the rail network owner we are working to ensure that the new infrastructure will be fit for purpose. To do this KiwiRail is providing technical support and also drawing on our knowledge and skills to facilitate construction on the live network.
Our Rail Network Rebuild sees us replacing old foundations, improving drainage and installing new track structures around Auckland over the coming years. This essential work will improve service reliability and ready the tracks for the opening of the City Rail Link.
Other works now underway include track changes at Britomart and Newmarket's busy junction. At the junction, known as the ‘the triangle', we have nearly completed building a new South-West connection:
We have completed work in Mt Eden, Ōtāhuhu (as featured in the video below), Parnell and the Britomart Tunnel.
