Britomart Transport Centre
Britomart Transport Centre is the hub of a transport plan for Auckland that connects new rail services, ferry terminal and light rail loop. At 50,000 square metres, it is Auckland’s largest transport project and the only underground diesel station in the world. It’s capable of carrying up to 10,500 passengers at peak hour. The Jasmax design team, along with Mario Madayag led the consultant team, engaging in wide consultation with planners, community groups and Ngati Whatua to co-ordinate the delivery of this significant urban project. The architectural design of the station incorporates elements of Auckland’s natural history. Light floods into the underground concourse through eleven skylights which visually represent Auckland’s many volcanoes and offer visitors underground sky views.
