Photo supplied Unveiling gateway DIRECT transfers between rail and bus will result from a new transport interchange opening this Saturday. The $17.5 million interchange is part of the Auckland Manu- kau Eastern Transport Initiative (AMETI) and frst stage of the South-Eastern Busway between Panmure, Pakuranga and Botany. Panmure’s new bus and rail sta- tion is expected to make commut- ing and transport connections for the eastern suburbs a more seam- less experience, with walking time between buses and trains taking less than a minute. Features include a new central pedestrian plaza linking both sides of the rail tracks, two lifts, escala- tors to both platforms, and four sets of stairs at the main access points. Ticket machines will be installed on the platforms with a staffed ticket offce on the ground foor. Temporary cycle parking will be available on Mountain Road until a permanent structure is installed by the middle of this year. Panmure is one of the busiest rail stations in the super-city han- dling about 800 passengers a day, up from less than 100 commuters a day in 2003. The next part of stage one will be the creation of busway lanes along Lagoon Drive and Pakuranga Road to a new bus station at Pakuranga Town Centre, including a busway lane added to the Panmure Bridge, and walking and cycling paths. In stage two, the Panmure Roundabout will be removed and a busway, walking and cycle paths from Panmure to Pakuranga Town Centre will be built. A new Reeves Road fyover will link Pakuranga Road with the Waipuna Bridge and South Eastern Highway. The Pakuranga to Botany phase will provide pedestrian and cycle improvements and extend the bus- way from Pakuranga to Botany. Auckland Transport intends to apply for a notice of requirement for the section later this year or in early 2015. Public hearings are likely to fol- low in the middle to late next year. The NZ Transport Agency and Auckland Council are the major funders of the $1.5 billion AMETI project. The offcial opening of the Pan- ■ mure transport interchange is from 11am-3pm on January 18, with local entertainment and refreshments available. The council says motor vehicle parking is limited, so people should consider walking, cycling or catching a bus. More information is online at www.aucklandtransport.govt.nz/ panmure opening.
