Tunnel

Today we ventured down to Auckland and thought we would try out the newly opened, and very expensive at $1.4billion, Waterview Tunnel.

 Here it is

Getting closer

And the exit

It certainly was much quicker for us to skirt around the central city as we were heading to Papakura to stay with Antony for a couple of nights.  As you can see, there was very little traffic and it was an easy run through.  We shall certainly be travelling the Western Ring Route, as it is called, in future rather than over the Harbour Bridge.  Well done to those responsible.
