Mott MacDonald wins New Zealand rail upgrade role

Consultant Mott MacDonald has been appointed to carry out design work for the NZ$2.86bn (£1.45bn) upgrade of Auckland’s City Rail Link.

The consultant is part of an integrated team, which also includes Aurecon, Jasmax and Grimshaw.

The upgrade includes the construction of two 3.4km long twin tunnels, which will enable the extension of the existing rail line underground through Britomart, to Albert, Vincent and Pitt Streets with additional city centre stations.

“CRL is the most significant improvement to Auckland’s transport network since the opening of the Auckland Harbour Bridge,” said Mott MacDonald project manager Peter Taylor. “Mott MacDonald first began working on the CRL in February 2012, when the team led station designs and produced concept designs. Where possible the project is below city streets to reduce the need for effects for property owners and city heritage buildings.”
