A Glimpse through the Fence

The Waterview Connection is part of the Western Ring Route which will eventually (about 2017) give a continuous motorway route between State Highway 16 (Northwestern Motorway) and Auckland Airport (via SH20). Here we are looking through the only peepholes in the vast expanse of grey noise wall (which itself is protected by temporary fencing) as the place is readied for the construction work: 96 homes had to go, of which about 30 were destined for a new life elsewhere.

This will be the tunnel entrance where the connection goes underground, surfacing again about 2.5 km later, south of Mount Albert.

  1. I’m very glad you’ve taken some photos. As a local, I keep passing and thinking ‘This is history: it needs recording.”
