Auckland Transport has begun construction of the new Hibiscus Coast Busway Station.
The new facility is located opposite the Silverdale War Memorial Park. Construction will run until May 2018.
The car park will have 484 parking bays, with a further 127 parking bays awaiting resource consent approval. The existing temporary car park will continue to be open to the public until the new car park is ready in February 2018.
When ready, the Hibiscus Coast Busway Station will provide significantly larger parking capacity for passengers of the Northern Express as well as local bus services, encouraging the use of public transport and reducing the number of vehicles on arterial roads.
During construction 200 parking bays will be available 24 hours a day. Parking on the grass verges is prohibited to facilitate construction work.
Hibiscus and Bays Local Board has also made temporary parking available at the site of the former Nippon Judo Club, on Hibiscus Coast Highway, just past the Silverdale War Memorial Park.
While construction work is underway, consider using bus services 981, 982, 983, 984, 986, 987, 988, 991x and 992x for travel to and from the Hibiscus Coast bus station.
