work on the Auckland underground rail loop is expected to start in November
According to Radio NZ, the final legal obstacle has been dismissed and work on the $2.5 billion project will begin later this year. Auckland Transport said work on the tunnel along Albert Street would start next May.
Chief executive David Warburton told Morning Report tens to hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent buying property for the project.
The 3.6 km underground railway line will run from Britomart, through the CBD, to Mount Eden Station.
