Stopping Onehunga Tagging
The graffiti busters were at the new Onehunga station this afternoon to try to prevent further tagging of the shiny new platforms at Onehunga Mall.
Already sections of the platform have been tagged.
Installation of CCTV, help points, signage, handrails and landscaping is pretty much done.
Vegetation along the northern boundary (Princes St) has been trimmed and tidied and new planting done near the ramps and pedestrian entrances.
The train buffer has been installed.
Glazing for the shelters is being installed.
The perimeter fence is being repaired.
The temporary park and ride area at the northern part of the site has been levelled and is hoped to be operating by the day trains commence on September 19.
Some work trains are starting to use the revived Onehunga train line as new signalling equipment is tested and train drivers are familiarised with the route.
Work continues around the 8 level crossings where there are new alarm strands and pedestrian mazes.
Enthusiast Geoff caught sight of the first test train into Onehunga yesterday afternoon.
