Works at Plimmerton Station over Easter and Anzac weekends, 2022


KiwiRail and its contractor Downer will be working at Plimmerton Station during the Easter and Anzac weekends.

During these periods, they are:
• demolishing part of the platform at the south end of the station
• removing the pedestrian crossing permanently
• progressing work in the underpass

Some of the work will be 24 hours. They will do their best to keep disruption to a minimum.

Replacement bus services will stop near the Palmers Garden Centre.

Please note the changes to access:
- The underpass at the north end of the platform will be temporarily closed while work is happening
- The Domain car park will be closed during Easter as a safety precaution, as heavy vehicles will be operating in the area
- From Thursday 14 April, the pedestrian crossing at the south end of the platform will be permanently closed.
- During Easter and Anzac, to get to the Plimmerton shops from the State Highway, access will be via the Steyne Avenue level crossing only.

Covid-19 may have an impact on work timelines and Metlink services.

Thanks for your patience as this important work is carried out.
