Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Lyttelton Rail Tunnel, initially called the Moorhouse Tunnel, links the city of Christchurch with the port of Lyttelton in the Canterbury region of New Zealand's South Island. It is the country's oldest operational rail tunnel, and is on one of the first railway lines in the district. On completion in 1867 it became the first tunnel in the world to be taken through the side of an extinct volcano, and at 2.7 km, the longest in the country. Its opening made the Ferrymead Railway, New Zealand's first public railway line, obsolete.show more
