Welcome Te Papapa, Penrose 3


Welcome Te Papapa and Penrose 3 train stations to the rail network.

Te Papapa can be accessed from Mays Rd, or Captain Springs Rd or Malvern Rd.

Penrose 3 is adjacent to Penrose Rd near Mt Smart. Those transferring to and from the south line have a few minutes walk over the footbridge from the old railway station.
This is an idea of the distance and shots of the new platform.

    Thanks Jon
    Is the park and ride nearly finished at Onehunga?

    Not double-tracked… yet ;)

  3. Ian says:

    I’m a little disappointed that Penrose wound up with two stations. It would have been nice to see one upgraded station serving both lines.

  4. Matt L says:

    Ian - I agree, I thought it would have been good to have moved it north to the Gt South Rd overbridge and have just one station for both lines
