Join us to celebrate the launch of our tunnel boring machine Hiwa-i-te-Rangi with a self-guided tour of our Central Interceptor construction site.
You will be able to immerse yourself in the works by walking in and around our site and seeing our progress and achievements.
For the first time ever, you will get an exclusive look at our cranes and other specialised equipment. We have built a special platform above the 38m deep shaft to wave to Hiwa-i-te-Rangi as she starts her journey tunnelling under the Manukau Harbour.
There’s a lot to see and discover, so be sure to book your tickets.
