About City Rail Link

The City Rail Link (CRL) is New Zealand’s largest transport infrastructure project ever to be undertaken in New Zealand. It is a 3.45km twin-tunnel underground rail link up to 42 metres below the Auckland city centre. The CRL will transform the way people move around the city.

The CRL is being designed and constructed to the highest environmental, cultural, social, and sustainability standards. It will set the benchmark for delivering sustainable infrastructure in New Zealand.

Students can travel online with LEARNZ from 1 June to:

  • View station designs that represent Mana Whenua narratives and cultural landmarks from Tāmaki Makaurau
  • Learn how the principles of kaitiakitanga and sustainability are driving the City Rail Link project
  • Discover possible career opportunities for working on such a large-scale project
  • Meet the Dame Whina Cooper tunnel boring machine creating the train tunnels
  • Gain insight into how this addition to the rail network will transform the way people move around Auckland.

Access supporting curriculum links and resources.
