Main construction work on the Manukau Bus Station will start next week following Auckland Transport awarding the contract to NZ Strong.

The $35 million project will be funded by Auckland Council and the Government through the New Zealand Transport Agency.

NZ Strong was selected as part of a competitive evaluation process which took into consideration the quality of work they agreed to provide within the set project budget.

Auckland Transport’s Group Manager of Capital Works, Andrew Scoggins says NZ Strong understood Auckland Transport’s requirements in their tender submission.

“There was a great deal of interest in the tendering process and NZ Strong demonstrated a commitment to actively provide social and economic opportunities for South Auckland, a key requirement in our tendering process.”

NZ Strong’s Managing Director, Chris Hunter is very proud to have been selected as the main contractor for the Manukau Bus Station project.

“Winning this tender is important to us as it recognises the hard work of our team on current and previous complex projects. Our teams strive to build trust and respect in the delivery of all our projects and the Manukau Bus Station will be another complex and challenging project that we will deliver.

“We have a highly skilled team who have successfully delivered other large projects for Auckland Transport. They have the ingredients to deliver a very successful project which will be an important facility for Auckland Transport and the community of South Auckland.”

The station should be complete by late 2017 if not early 2018. Yay and looking forward to the station finally being open despite the design.

Onto the next transport project.
