Orakei Station Accessibility Ramp Temporary Closure Orakei Station Accessibility Ramp Temporary Closure

Accessibility Ramp Upgrade

When?

From Monday 30 May 2022, for approximately 8 weeks.

What’s happening?

The accessibility access to Ōrākei Train Station will be closed temporarily whilst a new accessibility ramp is constructed. This will include:

  • Widening existing footpaths to become a 4 meter wide shared path.
  • Constructing a new path and two new mobility car parking spaces beside the driveway at 236 Ōrākei Road (Ōrākei Bay Village).
  • Installing traffic lights, pedestrian crossings and turning bays at the intersection of Ōrākei Road and the entry to the Ōrākei Train Station car park.
  • 50 car parks at Ōrākei Train Station Park & Ride will be temporarily occupied to allow for maintenance access, materials and machinery.
  • Rail Bus Services will still operate during Planned Rail Closures from the Park & Ride carpark as normal.

Occupied parks at Ōrākei Station

This will make traffic movements safer and give pedestrians and cyclists a safe place to cross this busy road.
