Back to work on Silverdale park and ride

Construction at the Silverdale Park ‘n’ Ride resumed when the country moved to Alert Level 3, but the lockdown has caused further delays to the project.

Auckland Transport spokesperson Mark Hannan says work began onsite on April 29, with appropriate Ministry Of Health guidelines being followed.

He says completion of the project, which was due to happen at the end of this year, may be delayed until late February next year.

“Due to the Covid-19 Level 4 shutdown onsite, work was not permitted and expected material supplies have also been delayed,” Mr Hannan says.

“Further on-site production delays may be experienced due to the uncertainty around Covid-19.”

He says Auckland Transport is working with its contractor to take every opportunity to complete the project at an earlier date if possible.

When it’s finished, there will be 90 more carparks, and a building containing ticket and AT Hop top-up machines, toilets, as well as secure cycle parking and well lit waiting areas protected from the elements. Construction of the park and ride began in late 2017.
