Auckland Transport (AT) has begun construction of the new Warkworth Community Transport Hub, led and funded by Rodney Local Board through the Rodney Transport Targeted Rate. The hub includes a Park & Ride, bike parking and other transport facilities.

Costing approximately $3.7 million the new station will feature:

  • A bus layover
  • Two bus stops
  • 137 car parks, including 15 short-term and four accessible parking
  • Footpaths
  • A signalised pedestrian crossing across Great North Road
  • Two toilet blocks
  • Bike parking
  • Lighting
  • CCTV

Originally projected to cost around $5 million, a competitive tendering process undertaken by AT, has resulted in the project cost being confirmed at $3.7 million.

The project is part of the Rodney Local Board Transport Targeted Rate which means that the board will now have an additional $1.3 million to invest in other projects in the targeted rate programme.

Murray Chapman, manager of One Mahurangi (business association), says parking in Warkworth has been a real issue with a lack of parks for our retail staff.

“This hub will free up parks for people to come and spend money and support our local businesses.”
