First stage of upgrade finished
After seven months of work the first stage of the Mt Albert Train Station upgrade is complete.
Access from Carrington Rd reopened on Monday after being closed since November and a family fun day and ribbon cutting ceremony is being held this weekend to celebrate.
The station has new passenger shelters and furniture, electronic information displays, help points, and improved lighting.
The surface was resealed and a covered bridge, concourse, and pedestrian lift have been installed.
Mt Albert is the last station on the Western Line to be refurbished as part of Auckland Transport’s rail station upgrade programme.
Plans for the second stage of
and work, which include building a link bridge to connect the station with the car park on New North Rd, are still being finalised.
The opening was scheduled to happen last weekend, but had to be postponed as the tracks were closed while Kiwi Rail undertook electrification work.
It is being held from 10am to 3pm on Saturday in the Video Ezy carpark on New North Rd.
