The floor at the Mercury Lane entrance to the station is one of five that will carry people to and from the platforms 25 metres below ground.

“It’s great to see a station that’s going to have a huge impact on the Karangahape Road area slowly taking shape,” says Jonathan Hill, the Karangahape Station Manager for the Link Alliance.

Progress on long-running Te Anau subdivision bright spot for pandemic-hit town

Tradies and community leaders say progress on the Luxmore Subdivision in Te Anau signals brighter days ahead for a tourism town impacted by Covid-19.

In April, during a public excluded section of a council meeting, Southland District councillors agreed to spend $380,000 unbudgeted expenditure, from the Luxmore Developmnent Reserve, to do a full engineering design upfront, ahead of the next stage.

The commercial and residential subdivision on the eastern edge of Te Anau is on council-owned land, and the community board has been managing the ongoing subdivision project in stages for years.
