Auckland Transport has released images of what the upgraded Pukekohe Station will most likely look like once construction is complete in late 2017.
The upgraded station will link bus stops with the existing rail platform. Car parking and cycle parking will be provided along with improved connections to the local roads and footpaths.
Auckland Transport will build the project in two stages:
- Stage 1 - construction of a temporary facility for new bus services and installation of traffic lights at the Custom Street/Manukau Road intersection.
- Stage 2 - construction of the park and ride area, access way, and pedestrian bridge.

As part of the upgrade, traffic lights have been installed at the intersection of Custom Street and Manukau Station Road. They will be operational this week and will provide improved reliability for the new bus services operating out of Custom Street. They will also provide a safer crossing point for pedestrians over Manukau Road and Custom Street.
The project is being delivered in partnership with Auckland Council and the Government through the NZ Transport Agency and is budgeted to cost $15.4 million.
