Alice do­ing well

Central Leader - - NEWS -

The tun­nel bor­ing ma­chine known as Alice is mak­ing good progress on con­struct­ing the sec­ond mo­tor­way tun­nel for the NZ Trans­port Agency’s Water­view Con­nec­tion project. Alice has ex­ca­vated just over a quar­ter of the 2.4km-long south­bound tun­nel. It is 22 me­tres be­low ground and has passed un­der Great North Rd. ‘‘Ev­ery­thing is on track for [Alice’s] planned break­through at Owairaka in mid-spring,’’ Trans­port Agency’s High­ways manager Brett Glid­don says.
