City Rail Link (CRL)
The City Rail Link (CRL) is NZ’s largest transport infrastructure project ever. It is a 3.45km twin-tunnel underground rail link up to 42 metres below the Auckland city centre. It will transform the downtown Britomart Transport Centre into a two-way through-station that better connects the Auckland rail network and it allows the rail network to at least double rail capacity.
Papakura to Pukekohe (P2P) Electrification
The extension of the current Auckland electrified network from Papakura to Pukekohe requires re-signalling and system upgrades. New signalling will be installed to improve safety, resilience and ensure compatibility with the new overhead power system.
Wiri to Quay Park (W2QP) Third Main
Westfield and Wiri are the busiest junctions on the rail network for both freight and commuter trains. The works will improve the way the junctions connect between the rail yards, EMU depot and the main line. Constructing an additional track through this area and improving the junctions between the Manukau Line, Ports of Auckland Inland Port, Auckland Transport’s EMU Depot, and the Southern Line will help to separate freight and commuter trains.
City Rail Link – Britomart Tunnel
Remodelling of Britomart Tunnel layout in preparation and to enable the City Rail Link works.
Plimmerton Area Capacity Enhancements (PACE)
Signalling upgrades to the Plimmerton Station area to facilitate a third platform and turn back capabilities to Wellington.
Trentham to Upper Hutt (T2UH)
The rail line between Trentham and Upper Hutt will be double tracked to create two lines so trains can travel in both directions at once. Signalling upgrades are being implemented for the existing line in addition to the new signalling installed on the second line.
City Rail Link Wider Works
Creating a new service between Ōtāhuhu and Henderson required a new platform and signalling upgrades at Ōtāhuhu to allow those trains to turn back. The platform is located on a loop track off the main line.
Level Crossing Upgrades
Automatic pedestrian gates, emergency exit gates and further warning lights and bells installed at 25 Auckland crossings.
Newmarket Power Upgrades
Modifications to Signalling locations to align with standard power arrangements.
