Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

The Water­view Con­nec­tion will link the North­west­ern and South­west­ern Mo­tor­ways (State High­ways 16 and 20) to com­plete the Western Ring Route, one of the Gov­ern­ment’s roads of na­tional sig­nif­i­cance to help pro­mote eco­nomic growth, and im­prove safety and jour­ney re­li­a­bil­ity for driv­ers.

The project in­cludes twin 4.5km-long tun­nels, both three lanes wide, be­tween Water­view and Owairaka, planned to open in 2017.

Get­ting ready: Drilling on the Water­view Con­nec­tion will be­gin in Novem­ber.
