Opportunities: Britomart

OPPORTUNITIES: BRITOMART

Britomart Transport Centre will become a through-running station.

This by extending the existing tracks westwards under Lower Queen Street, turning under Albert Street to new stations at Aotea, Karangahape and Mt Eden.  

The land at the rear of the CPO, presently the temporary station entrance, has significant development potential. The opportunity has been future-proofed by the project for Auckland Transport (the asset owner).

The CPO will be refurbished by CRL prior to the completion of the project. There will be  a permanent retail solution for the ground floor of the CPO that will be complementary to the significant heritage upgrade.

This is how the station interior could look:

Design for Lower Queen Street

Brit concept.jpg

The City Rail Link design team in conjunction with Auckland Council has been working on the design for Lower Queen Street and Britomart station surrounds for when the CRL construction allows.

The concept design has been completed for review by the Auckland Urban Design Panel and the City Centre Advisory Board.  

What's proposed is a creation of a stunning plaza and pedestrian space for Auckland in Lower Queen Street outside the Britomart Transport Centre.

The team is working in partnership with Mana Whenua to generate a high quality flexible space that responds to the unique Auckland location.
