Manukau Bus Train Interchange
The $27 million Manukau Bus Station is a local and regional bus hub which, combined with the adjacent Manukau Train Station forms an integrated bus and train interchange for Manukau, with connections to the nearby retail, commercial and civic areas.
The station provides 23 bus bays of which 21 are sheltered by a 12 metre cantilever roof which allows for future changes in bus types.
The distinctive repeating “kite” roof forms encloses a large and open central concourse area with both visual and physical connectivity between Putney Way and the bus operation areas. A tapered planning arrangement provides an inviting quality of passenger experience in a building that could otherwise be a low, long and narrow space.
