Aucklanders will get the chance to see firsthand the giant tunnel boring machine which will complete construction of the two City Rail Link tunnels.

Auckland’s “Boring Day Out” will be held at the project's Mt Eden construction site on December 6.

People will be able to see up close the machine named Dame Whina Cooper after the Māori rights activist.

They will also view where the machine starts its underground journey next year, from Mount Eden to the new Karangahape underground station, then to the Aotea station in central Auckland.

“This will be a rare opportunity to see the star of New Zealand’s biggest-ever transport infrastructure project before it disappears underground,” said Francois Dudouit, Project Director for the Link Alliance.

Details about where people can get tickets on-line will be announced next week.

Ten visiting sessions will be held, with the first entry at 9 am and the last at 6 pm.

Visitor numbers will be restricted to 500 for each session.

Tickets are free and people can book up to five tickets per person.

People with wheelchairs, mobility scooters, prams/pushchairs and walking sticks are welcome.

Entry to the Mt Eden site will be via Ngahura Street near New North Road.

The walk is 600 metres long and the ground is flat but there are some uneven surfaces.

It will cost at least $1 million to fix the Auckland Harbour Bridge, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency estimates.

A truck was blown into a steel support truss and led to lane closures, prompting renewed calls for an additional crossing.

Stuff earlier reported transport officials want a $5 billion rail tunnel under the Auckland harbour a decade before any additional road link, according to new council documents.

One of the best things about working for homed is all the inspiring people I get to chat to. One of my favs, and the most inspiring was Tracey Hemingway, who as The Debt Free Diva offers advice and guidance on getting your finances under control and working for you.
She knows what she's talking about, too. Not only did she smash more than $90k of debt in three years, but in the year since she paid it off, she's saved enough, on top of her Kiwisaver, to pay the deposit on a home of her own.
It wasn't easy, and Tracy would be the first person to tell you that! But it is doable. Check out how, and have a listen to our episode of First Rung about Settlement day, on this link below. It includes some tips from Tracy on setting up a budget to manage your finance when you have a mortgage to pay.

Auckland's latest community case of Covid-19 works at A-Z Collection on High St in the central city.

The woman, a student at AUT University, has no clear connection to the border or a managed isolation facility.

However, after genome sequencing was carried out, it is believed she contracted the virus from a New Zealand Defence Force staffer who went to brunch at a CBD restaurant, near her work.
