Listing Detail Tabs

Do you or someone you know want to get up close and personal with the huge machine that is constructing the Waterview tunnels in Auckland? Called Alice, this totally brilliant machine is like a giant underground factory. It drives a huge hole through the ground that is big enough for three motorway lanes, removing spoil and creating a sealed concrete tunnel as it goes.
There are four “golden tickets” on offer. The tickets are being sold separately, by four separate auctions. The auctions will close on Sunday 15 December, making one of these tickets a perfect Christmas gift.
The four successful bidders will get a once-in-a-lifetime tour of the Waterview Connection project, which is the largest roading and most challenging project ever undertaken in New Zealand. The tour will include a visit to Alice who will then be well underground on the first leg of her two-year journey from Owairaka to Waterview and back. Ticket holders will be guided by internationally experienced tunnelling experts.
All proceeds from this auction will go to the Red Cross’s Typhoon Haiyan Appeal recognising the suffering of the families of our great Filipino workmates at the Waterview Connection project.

Payment will be by bank deposit to the Well-Connected Alliance, which is building the Waterview Connection.
