Otahuhu Town Centre Upgrade

The Otahuhu Town Centre Upgrade project for Auckland Transport includes landscape architecture and design led by Boffa Miskell and civil and structural engineering by Envivo.

Tony Smith, Principal Engineer and Project Lead, said “This streetscape project covers more than 1.5km of road with footpath, landscaping and kerbing.  The connections from the newly opened Otahuhu Train Station, via both Station Road and also Mason Avenue, to Great South Road is a key route, into the busy area and has been identified by Auckland Council as a key transportation and commercial hub.

We recognise that the connections for bus routes and cycling & walking is important in addition to road capacity, and as such, the design team are working on options to improve capacity, safety and aesthetics of the entire route”

The Envivo team provided structural and civil engineering services including:

  • Investigation of underground services, pipes, utilities and facilities:
  • Concept Design
  • Developed Design
  • Detailed Design
