As more homes reach completion, infrastructure continues to develop at Paerata Rise.
The railway station has been the talk of the town, following confirmation of the station by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency in February. The work is part of a $933 million package for Auckland’s rail network announced in early 2020 in the government’s New Zealand Upgrade Programme.
KiwiRail and the supporting Growth Alliance (Auckland Transport and Waka Kotahi) have extended the network to coincide with demands from developments feeding into the area, as part of a longer term transport network being investigated and delivered to support growth in South Auckland.
Executive Director of Paerata Rise, Chris Johnston, says the railway station is welcome news for the neighbourhood.
“The railway will provide a needed, economical link to Auckland CBD. Rail will be easy to use, better for the environment and a user friendly mode of transport. We are excited for this project to be completed.”
