New electric bus depot

10 Apr 2023

We have built an electric bus charging facility to support the new airport bus service on Kauri Street at the site of the old Miramar South School.

The new depot provides overnight bus changing capabilities, driver amenities and vehicle wash down facilities. This 10-bus depot is the second fully electric depot in New Zealand.

As well as the depot, several planned projects on the current airport site mean we need to move some rental car parks over to this site.

Site works have included the removal of existing former residential buildings on site. The former kindergarten building has been refurbished and will be used for support services.

The site is being carefully designed to ensure the boundary presents a green and attractive space, with fences and hedges to also keep noise levels down. The new buildings are designed to keep a low profile and will be set back at least five metres from the boundary.

Please note: this site is closed to public access for safety reasons apart from the grass field at the northern end which is now open to the public again.
