    Work on a rapid transit system from Auckland Airport and beyond will begin this year

    Work on a rapid transit system from Auckland Airport and beyond will begin this year


    Auckland Airport
    Auckland Airport
    Mayor Phil Goff and Transport Minister Phil Twyford have announced work on the upgrade of the Puhinui Rail Station Interchange will start in October.

    The 60-million-dollar project, 75 per cent of which is Government funded, is part of a wider scheme to bring mass transit to Manukau and further east.

    Mayor Phil Goff says it won't just be great for getting to the airport in time, but it'll help the 34-thousand people who work in the airport precinct.

    He says we've got 20-million passenger arrivals and departures at the airport, so it's much needed.
