Avondale’s Odd Opening: All Go, No Go! – Latest Photos
Avondale’s new station is nearing completion – and is on for an odd opening.
The level construction on the new station platforms at Layard St is now making good progress and the structure will be complete in the next few weeks.
But don’t expect to be using it then.
Once, completed, the station will then be fenced off and won’t be open until June.
This is so other parts of the neighbouring rail network are sorted at the same time.
The crossing at St Georges Rd will be finished in June when the new rail signals are installed at the same time as in Avondale and New Lynn.
St Georges Rd was the site of intensive activity in December and January as a second track was laid through the area.
It followed similar work at Chalmers St and St Jude St, which have been completely double-tracked and upgraded with new pedestrian mazes and roading.
