Start of Waterview Connection

Breakthrough is an iconic moment for every tunnel project. Beca was part of the Well-Connected Alliance that delivered the Waterview Connection – New Zealand’s most complex road project to date -, providing a range of services including environmental impact assessments, planning, structural, geotechnical, intelligent transport and transportation advisory services.


In 2010, work started on the $1.4 billion project which includes two parallel 2.4km-long tunnels, and seven major bridge structures. Opened to commuters on 2 July 2017, the Waterview Connection significantly reduced regional congestion and created a direct, time-saving link between Auckland’s International Airport and the city centre.
