Puhinui Station Interchange

Auckland Transport is upgrading the Puhinui Station to become a major bus and train interchange that will link Auckland to the Airport. Alpha Rail was engaged for the purpose of completing temporary works to allow for the installation of new Hollowcore bridge beams above the Up Main and the OLE transfer from existing structures to drop tubes under Puhinui Station Concourse Overbridge to enable the future addition of third and fourth Mains.
