Feedback open on Rosedale Busway Station plans
Auckland Transport and the NZ Transport Agency are working together to develop plans for a new busway station in Rosedale. Once consented, the new station is planned to be built as part of the NCI project works, alongside the extension of the Northern Busway.
The Rosedale Busway Station will improve transport options for people working or visiting this busy commercial and industrial hub, and will also provide a stepping stone for those travelling on the Northern Express bus service, to Albany and further north or to the city centre.
The plans look to build the busway station on Arrenway Drive, with a bridge structure over Rosedale Road and the station platforms located on either side of the structure via an overpass. The station connects to the local bus network through feeder bus stops on Rosedale Road.
The new station will include a drop-off and pick up area, along with a number of operational and mobility parking bays, waiting areas, and cycling facilities such as bike racks and lockers. The busway station will connect to the 7km of shared walking and cycling paths being constructed as part of the NCI project, as well as connections to existing local walking and cycling routes along Rosedale Road (see the next story for more on cycling).
No park and ride is proposed at this stage. Instead, investment options are being investigated by AT to look at upgrading parking options at existing park and ride stations.
The roll out of Auckland Transport’s ‘New Network’ later this year will provide more local feeder bus services and improved routes to make it easier for customers to access Rosedale. Furthermore, when the new Rosedale Busway Station is complete, there will be further changes which will re-route and improve bus services to the station.
AT is also working on an on-street parking strategy in parallel with the development of the busway station to help manage the on-street parking demand in Rosedale.
