Aucklanders are one step closer to getting rapid transit to the airport, Transport Minister Phil Twyford and Auckland Mayor Phil Goff have announced. (18 May 2019)
Auckland Transport has awarded the contract for the upgrade of the Puhinui Rail Station Interchange to the McConnell Dowell-Built Environs Joint Venture. ...
“The project will be completed within 18 months of construction, which begins this year, and is planned to be open before the APEC leaders meeting in 2021,” Phil Goff said.
Travel times from Puhinui Station to Auckland Airport will be 10 minutes in priority lanes; 22 minutes to Manukau; and 46 minutes to Britomart Station.
The Puhinui interchange forms part the wider Southwest Gateway programme, in which the Transport Agency, Auckland Transport and Auckland Airport are working together to deliver transport projects that will improve access to the airport and its surrounding area to benefit workers, travellers, tourists and freight movements.
The total project cost is $60 million. The Government, through the NZ Transport Agency, is contributing co-investment funding for the project, with the remainder coming from Auckland Council and the Regional Fuel Tax.
