This project reconfigures the underground junction at the east end of Britomart Station (to be renamed Waitemata Station when City Rail Link opens). It includes upgrade from ballast to slab track to match the CRL tunnels, rail systems and structural modifications to match. This is a critical piece of work to ensure that CRL can achieve full capacity. Being in a very constrained site with limited access and challenging operational conditions, it is being designed and constructed in multiple stages over several years. It is approximately half built, and detailed design of the final stage is nearing completion. This presentation will give an overview of the design objectives, development, and staging, as well as the construction to date.

This presentation will be delivered by Tim Smith (Design Package Manager for Aurecon), with Jaco Vorster (Engineering Manager, Martinus Rail)

Tim Smith is an Associate in Rail and Mass Transit at Aurecon. He has been the design package manager for Britomart East right from the initial investigation through to detailed design. He also helped manage and lead the alignment designs for several wider network projects including Mt Eden Single Line Enabling works, Otahuhu 3rd Main and the Strand crossover. He is the alignment subject matter expert for CRL Owner Verifier. He also brings international experience from the Trackwork Services Alliance with KBR in Sydney.

Jaco is the Engineering Manager for Martinus New Zealand. He has been involved in various aspects of CRL's ballasted and ballastless trackform design and construction packages. Jaco brings practical application and an understanding of integrated systems to lead Martinus New Zealand’s systems assurance for design & engineering teams. He worked on various international multidisciplinary rail projects in Australia, the USA, Europe and Africa.

An opportunity for Q&A with the team will follow the presentation.
