Opened in 2006, the Moa Point tunnel located at the south end of the Wellington International Airport's runway, links popular surf beach Lyall Bay and scenic Moa Point. While planes do not directly land above the tunnel, it supports the safety section of the runway that's only used in emergencies.

The tunnel features sculptured panels designed to replicate the patterns used to guide aircraft on to the runway. It also includes safety features such as ventilation, good lighting, video surveillance and emergency call points.

It has verges for cyclists and pedestrains.
