The $69 million Puhinui Station in south Auckland is set to re-open on Monday 26 July 2021 – unlocking fast, frequent and easy connections to Auckland Airport, Auckland Council announces. The stunning architectural landmark includes mahi-toi (artwork) by Wāhi Wairua and the use of te reo Māori throughout – brought about by a partnership with mana whenua – with Te Ākitai Waiohua providing design leadership. The station closed in September 2019 due to construction works, but will connect trains with the electric AirportLink bus service.
