Downer undertakes station construction

 

 

Auckland Transport has chosen Downer to undertake the main construction works on the Pukekohe Station upgrade after a competitive tender process.
The $15.4 million project will cover the build of the new park and ride area, improved bus station facilities and a pedestrian overbridge at the new integrated bus and train station.
Construction is due to begin in July and be completed in early 2018.
The new station facilities will link bus services with the existing rail services. Commuter parking space and cycle parking will be provided along with improved connections to the local road and footpath networks.
Social and economic procurement was a key element in the tender process for Pukekohe Station and the successful contractor will be engaging with The Southern Initiative for the project.
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
