Letter: Pukekohe Service Centre
Reading your article about the possibility that the Auckland Council may sell the Pukekohe Service Centre at 82 Manukau Road, Pukekohe.
Instead of selling the site and buildings why not demolish the existing buildings and construct a carpark for the train commuters. This site is directly behind the train station.
I know they are in the process of constructing a new carpark but its only 87 carparks sites.
There are hundreds of cars parked daily on Station Road all the way down past the Showgrounds and to the top of Carlton Road.How long will their new 87 carpark service the fast growing district? This is a common problem at many railway station carparks throughout the super city.
TAKE THE TRAIN BUT WHERE DO I PARK MY CAR? The council need to look ten years down the track not five minutes down the road. Chris
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.
