Charity dinner inside Victoria Park Tunnel

An estimated 1000 guests will enjoy an historic dining experience inside the 450-metre tunnel on Thursday 27 October with all proceeds from the evening going towards the completion of Ronald McDonald House Auckland Trust’s family accommodation facility, Grafton Mews. The Trust provides support and accommodation for families from all over New Zealand whose children are receiving treatment at Starship Children’s Hospital.

The New Zealand Transport Agency will be holding an official opening and public open day two days after the gala dinner on Saturday 29 October. Northbound traffic is scheduled to flow through the tunnel from 7 November. “We are delighted that through NZTA’s association with Downtown Rotary, the Ronald McDonald House Auckland Trust is able to make the most of this historic opportunity before the official opening,” says New Zealand Transport Agency’s Tommy Parker.

The opening of the tunnel is the first stage of completion in the overall Victoria Tunnel Project. Completion of the entire project is scheduled for March 2012.
