At Mount Eden station, the major network diversion work is finally complete and the platform structure is taking shape, as well as the basement level of the ventilation plant. The above-ground section of the MC60 tunnel, which will connect the existing tracks to the MC30 tunnel, is also progressing. Finally, the footbridge linking the future station to the platforms on the existing tracks has been installed. The facade is awaiting a future track closure.
Following dismantling of the south track in the “C5” connection zone, piling and sheet-piling work resumed, along with earthworks for the tunnel beneath the tracks that have returned to service. Road and infrastructure work also continued to prepare for reopening of the track crossings that have been temporarily closed.
The TBM has returned to its starting point and is currently being reassembled at Mount Eden. The curved start required a pre-tunnel, which was finished just in time! The tunnels housing the forks have been excavated and surfacing is under way. First-phase concreting has started in the first bored-tunnel section
