Puhinui Interchange (Early Deliverable) (the Project) is the first stage of an upgrade to the Puhinui train station to allow Auckland Airport to Botany bus services to connect to the heavy rail public transport network. The Project forms part of the Short Term Airport Access Improvements of the Airport to Botany Rapid Transit Network project, which itself sits within the Southwest Gateway programme.
The upgraded Puhinui train station (Puhinui Interchange) is a key infrastructure component within the wider Southwest Gateway programme of Auckland Airport, NZTA and Auckland Transport works and will provide a step change in terms of connectivity and amenity improvements for public transport patrons in the area. In order to have the best possible facility delivered, Auckland Transport is undertaking an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) procurement approach to introduce construction innovation and efficiency into the Project during the design phase and ahead of the main physical works contract.
The main physical works contract scope will include:
• Demolishing the existing Puhinui Station footbridge;
• Construction of an elevated concourse with vertical transportation (stairs, lifts and escalators);
• HOP ticket gateline;
• Staff and retail facilities;
• High-quality fit out;
• At-grade bus area including shelter, kiss and ride parking, cycle shelter and landscaping;
• Extended shelter coverage on the rail platform;
• Wetland storm water solution;
• An emergency egress footbridge and access path to the south of the station (TBC); and
• Other amenities and improvements as required.
The Project is aiming to deliver an operational Interchange by the end of December 2020. Design is currently at the preliminary design stage.
A subsequent stage involving construction of a rapid transit overbridge and elevated bus platforms is not part of the Project.
