All the Project equipment was handled into storage at the Port of Auckland and later hauled 275 kilometers to the Project site at Te Uku.

All loads needed to be transported from the port and be clear of the city limit at Drury South Auckland by 6am. Haulage over the Raglan deviation on SH 23 was restricted to after 9am each day to avoid traffic delays.

On site roads included gradients of up to 20% requiring use of Tranzcarr’s specialized fleet of heavy off road prime movers to complete the haulage to the 28 foundation locations.
