Historic building to be relocated

Pukekohe’s 104 year old railway station building will be relocated according to an Auckland Transport spokesperson.
“It has been agreed to relocate the building and investigation into relocation works are underway,” the spokesperson said last week. “Unfortunately, at this stage no further details are available.”
The Franklin Heritage Forum who have been advocating for the building to remain, are disappointed with the lack of communication and consultation.
The building is owned by KiwiRail and leased to Auckland Transport.

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.
