The Waterview Tunnel is a key piece of the Western Ring Route, a 48 km motorway route through the west of Auckland, connecting Manukau, the city, West Auckland and the North Shore. The 2.4km Waterview Tunnel between Pt Chevalier and Mt Roskill opened in July 2017, and cost $1.4b to build.
We were tasked as a recovery project team to manage the integration of key infrastructure into software applications that were needed for the safe flow of traffic through the Waterview Tunnel and connecting each end to major state highways 16 and 20.
Our success was being involved in the completion of the required control room setup and configuration, high-speed fibre network, radio re-broadcasting network, police radios, tunnel emergency telephones, monitoring and speed cameras, travel time signs, PA systems, and key software interfaces into the Waterview Tunnel’s application system, Sidera.
A major milestone for us was achieving operational acceptance for all components that we were involved with, including the setup and failover of datacenters on each end of the tunnel and support for training.
