Sandringham Rd Houses Uplifted For RWC - Latest Photos


All in the name of the Rugby World Cup 2011, these Sandringham Road houses, opposite the Kingsland train station, continue to be uplifted as part of the Eden Park preparations.

As detailed here a month ago, three houses within their existing boundaries on Sandringham Rd, are being relocated. Being shifted are houses at 30 to 34 Sandringham Rd while the one at 38 Sandringham Rd is being demolished.  A major part of the work is creating a one way road from Sandringham Rd to Walters Rd, to provide better pedestrian access to Eden Park. The road will normally be a shared space and provide an alternative route for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers (one way only) travelling around the area. But when Eden Park games are on, the lane will be for pedestrians only.

Houses affected are in the shadow of Eden Park

Over the road at the Kingsland station, where an underpass is being built and longer platforms, here are how things look this morning:
