On 6 April, Auckland’s historic Chief Post Office reopened, to resume its role as the main entrance to the Britomart Transport Centre.
The 109-year-old Category A-listed heritage building now opens onto a new public square on lower Queen Street.
The upper levels of the building will be used for offices. Two City Rail Link (CRL) tunnels now run through the building’s basement.
Many of the CPO original interior features are retained.
Each weekday up to 38,000 commuters use Britomart Station. The CPO is a pivotal part of the CRL that links Britomart and the Mt Eden Station 3.45 kilometres away.
