It's starting to look like a train station now, beside Layard Street. Spotted the crane yesterday at work on the fittings.
While they'll be rolling trains through the new trench at New Lynn from tomorrow, there's still a lot of work yet. The photo above shows we still have that single track which (they say) will be sorted by June/July or so. Even the new New Lynn Station under Clark Street is just temporary, until they finish shifting things around in terms of the adjacent bus station.
It'll be interesting when the Avondale Station does open. For a while, until developers go nuts, we should get a bit of a view of the Waitakeres, something we value here.
