We led an international joint venture on a six-year contract as independent checking and site engineer on the Taiwan High Speed Rail project. At the time of development, it was among the world’s largest privately funded transport schemes. The proposed NZ.86 billion Auckland City Rail Link (CRL) is considered to be the most significant improvement to Auckland’s transport network since the opening of the Auckland Harbour Bridge.
