Join ICE New Zealand for the 2022 Annual General Meeting which will be followed by a presentation on the City Rail Link project.

The Link Alliance is designing and constructing most of the fascinating and technically complex City Rail Link project, New Zealand’s largest ever transport infrastructure project.

  • The CRL is a 3.45km twin-tunnel underground rail link up to 42 metres below Auckland’s city centre.
  • It will transform the downtown Britomart Station into a two-way through-station that better connects the city’s rail network.
  • It allows the rail network to ultimately double rail capacity
  • With 3 new stations, 3450m of tunnels, 3km of above ground grade separated rail track and all the associated rail systems integration, we are sure that you will find this an interesting presentation

Link Alliance comprises CRLL / Vinci Construction Grands Projets / Soletanche Bachy International / Downer / WSP / AECOM / Tonkin and Taylor.

Francois Dudouit, (Link Alliance Project Director) will share the story of Link Alliance’s journey to date to deliver the CRL.


If you are unable to attend in-person you can watch the live streaming of the event on YouTube from 6pm (NZ time). Questions can be posted to the speakers through the streaming service.
