From left, Murray Holden, Beth Holden, Maureen Waddilove, Hugh Young and Dave Waddilove. One last ride into Muri By KAROLINE TUCKEY Commuters farewelled a fam- iliar stop when Tranz Metro trains made their last call at Pukerua Bay s Muri railway sta- tion. Services to the station ceased on April 30, due to safety con- cerns that would have cost more than $750,000 to remedy. Beth Holden, who grew up in Pukerua Bay, was among a handful of people who gathered at the station for one last ride. She says many residents will have a lot of memories associ- ated with the stop. Her mother and father were among a group of young parents who campaigned to have the station built, and after it opened in 1953 it was the family s main route for shopping in Porirua, getting to work and school in Wellington and emergency trips to the hospital with childhood injuries. It s very sad to see something close, because once it s closed for the community it s always harder to re-establish it later. The walk to Pukerua Bay rail- way station, about one kilometre south, was difficult for mothers with young children, she said, and the closure was a pity when new trains were being intro- duced and many people were concerned about carbon emissions and road congestion. An engineering report on the station commissioned by Kiwi- Rail last June said the station was used by about 17 people a day and had some of the worst hazards of any train station in the region. Problems included a steep curve in the tracks at the station causing large gaps between the platform and stopped trains, insufficient lighting, structural defects and illegal access points. KiwiRail s Nigel Parry said it was not known how much of the station would be dismantled.
