Media release: Thursday 12 April
Auckland Transport is holding a community open day for the public to view the new Manukau Station and ride on the new rail line on Saturday 14 April from 11.30am to 2pm.
There will be station tours and information about the second stage of the station construction, short train rides, face painting, a celebrity sausage sizzle and music from DJ Sir-Vere. Parking is available in the Auckland Council staff car park.
Passenger services from the new station begin operating this Sunday 15 April.
Initially, Manukau Station will have three trains an hour in peak times and one train an hour at other times.
The 580 bus service from Botany, Flat Bush and Redoubt Rd will be extended to Manukau Station, and services increased, to provide a connection between trains and these suburbs.
A temporary entrance to the station on Davies Ave, next to Hayman Park, will be in place while construction continues above ground.
The second stage of the project is a $95 million integrated transport hub and tertiary campus at the Manukau city centre site.
