Rotokauri Transport Hub is Underway

28th Nov 19

The first earth has moved for Hamilton's new transport hub. 

The official sod turning has been held at the Tasman Road site with Labour MP Jamie Strange and Hamilton Mayor Paula Southgate doing the honours. 

The $29 million Rotokauri Transport Hub will include a bus interchange, a rail platform for Hamilton to Auckland passenger rail and a pedestrian bridge over the railway to The Base.

Downer NZ has the contract to build the hub.

The start-up rail service, due to start mid-2020, is to offer two weekday return services and one Saturday service. 

The project was an example of what can be achieved through collaboration across council boundaries and through partnerships with the Government and its agencies, Southgate said.

"If we are to unlock the potential of this region, we must – all of us – put aside our boundaries and work with others to achieve the very best outcomes for the people we represent."

"As a high-growth city, surrounded by high-growth, high-potential districts like Waikato and Waipā, what happens in our region and in Hamilton matters. The Government has clearly recognised that, and this project illustrates the wider partnership Hamilton has tenaciously and successfully pursued with central Government."

The Rotokauri Transport Hub is part of a $2 billion investment in Hamilton's biggest ever ten year capital programme to set the platform for planned, sustainable growth and to look after the city's future transport, infrastructure and community facilities.

The new rail service means it's expected to take about 80 minutes to get from Rotokauri to Papakura.

Labour's Hamilton based list MP Jamie Strange said in terms of size, volume and value, this is New Zealand's most significant inter regional road and rail traffic corridor.

"The corridor connects two of New Zealand's largest and fastest growing urban areas along a corridor with high natural and cultural importance and value." 

"The population along this corridor is expected to increase by around 300,000 people in the next 30 years and what we are doing here with the expressway, passenger rail and the river linking it all, is that we are essentially combining the labour markets of Auckland and the Waikato region which will give people the opportunity for business and for people to live and work all along that corridor," Strange said.

Once it's finished, the Rotokauri hub will include a "Park and Ride" facility for rail and bus passengers, including mobility spaces, electric vehicle charging spaces, drop-off and pick-up zones and taxi stands.
