Speeding up crowds getting to Mt Smart Stadium

Penrose Station's platform 3 gets an extension

Published: 14 February 2018

Improvements to Penrose train station will get concert-goers to and from the station more quickly with less crowding.

Auckland Transport (AT) is beginning work to extend the length of platform 3 at Penrose Station by 15 metres at its northwest end and by 40 metres at its southwest end. The extension will allow 6-car trains to use the station when special events are held at Mt Smart Stadium.

Other improvements include a new staircase to the western end of the platform, new lighting and better CCTV and public announcement systems.

Ready for March concerts

Auckland Transport is aiming to have an operational and useable, 6-car platform ready for scheduled concerts at Mt Smart Stadium in March but the full work will take up to 12 weeks to complete.

During construction, trains will continue to stop at Penrose Station. For more information, visit
