It’s exterior is being refurbished by Kiwirail, with assistance from Dave Pearson Architects. Designed by NZ Railways architect George Troup (who designed the wonderful Dunedin Railway Station), it was built in 1908.
While Stage 1 of the station won’t be fully complete until late 2017, some services will stop at the station from Sunday 12 March. An opening ceremony will be held on 13 March.
