Onehunga History Nice Touch


The Grafton station-type idea of putting graphics alongside the Onehunga station to deter graffiti, is a very nice touch.

The Onehunga station’s exterior fenceline alongside Princes St and Onehunga Mall, has reproductive photos of Onehunga’s history, much of it transport related. The line was the first to run in Auckland in 1873, taking passengers between Waitemata and Manukau harbours.

    I like these touches that ARTA have added to some of the new stations.

    Absolutely fantastic….Brilliant if my Father in law was still alive he would have been most proud,as he drove trams down the main street of Onehunga.

    @Bryan It would have been amazing to hear his stories. Theres a tram exhibition about MOTAT at the moment and a great DVD that pops up for a few dollars in the Warehouse bins called Auckland trams that has old film footage of Auckland’s trams
