Reader and photographer Jeff Smith has been working with the Well Connected Alliance – the consortium building the Waterview Tunnels to document the project. He has just released these photos and more of some of the progress to date. The tunnel is now about 150m in length

Thanks to Jeff for letting me run with the photos and there are a heap more on his site. If you’re interested in the project at all then it’s definitely worth a look. http://albums.jeffsmithphotography.co.nz/life-underground
