Mt Eden works


This page gives you the background to City Rail Link work in the Mt Eden area.

At this stage, there are three different work programmes planned or underway.

  • Stormwater work: City Rail Link's C6 contract involves diverting a section of the existing Mt Eden stormwater pipe. This will create a new alignment between Water and Nikau Streets to enable CRL's redevelopment of the Mt Eden train station. The existing stormwater pipe is in the path of the new CRL tunnels.

  • Geotechnical investigations: These are being conducted in various locations, both inside and outside of the rail corridor, to assist CRL engineers with the design of the physical structures needed to connect the new CRL line with the existing Western Line track.

  • Demolition works: The CRL will connect to the Western Line at Mt Eden and a large construction site needs to be established to build this connection. CRL is currently obtaining approvals for demolition of CRL-owned buildings in Mt Eden to provide a level construction site.
