Work starts on Onehunga rail station

Finally, the New Zealand Herald reports work has started on Onehunga’s new rail station:

ARC chairman Mike Lee and the Campaign for Better Transport, which raised an 8000-signature petition in 2006 to reopen the Onehunga branch railway line to passenger trains, were last week becoming increasingly nervous about a lack of progress on the site.

It’s a shame there won’t be integration with buses, but at least they’ll be handy to the station, with Onehunga’s main bus station being by the public library.
