North East Airport Development - Park N Ride

Project Progress

Client: Airport Authority
Location: Auckland Airport, Auckland

The project involved the construction of 500 car parks, building platform, widening of Verrisomo Drive road and roundabout construction, street lighting, stormwater, sewer reticulation, water reticulation, services relocation, footpath construction, bus shelters, traffic management and landscaping. The earthworks were programmed to be completed before winter and the surface was stabilised with aggregates so that the pavement construction could be carried out in winter months.


Project Scope

  • Earthworks carried out in one season – topsoil stripping and respreading 250,000m3; cut to fill 460,000m3; cut to waste 65,000m3.
  • Pavement works 50,000m2. 
  • Drainage – we installed over 5,000m of subsoil drains; 2,100m of drainage works over the site, including 48 cesspits. The drainage lines were varying from 225 diameter to 900 diameter; manholes ranging from 1,050 to 1,500 diameter. To treat the water going into the live watercourse we also installed a Hynds up-flow unit.
