A game-changer for Auckland's public transport

Built Environs and McConnell Dowell, in joint venture, have successfully delivered the Puhinui Station Interchange. The interchange is key to the Southwest Gateway programme and improving public transport connections between Auckland Airport and the CBD, paving the way for more sustainable transport modes.

The project saw part of the existing footbridge demolished and a new multimodal interchange constructed. This included an at-grade bus area, drop-off zones, cycle facilities, lighting and CCTV, and landscaping. There's also a concourse with stairs, lifts, escalators, a HOP gateline, staff and retail facilities.

This project is a great example of the two businesses working together to provide customers with a multi-discipline design and construction service with a single, seamless management interface and delivery team.
