Drury railway station
|Line(s)||North Island Main Trunk|
|Closed||21 May 1972|
The Auckland and Drury Railway Act 1863 was passed by Parliament "to enable the Superintendent of the Province of Auckland to construct a Railway between the Towns of Auckland and Drury with a Branch to Onehunga in the said Province."
The station opened in October 1874. On 8 December 1918, the existing station was replaced by a new Drury station building on a new site which also replaced the Runciman Railway Station. On 21 May 1972 the station was closed.
New train stations for Drury West and Paerata are included in a July 2017 proposal for Auckland infrastructure spending of $600 million to support new housing announced by the government. They will be built and owned by a new Crown Infrastructure Partners body, as the Auckland Council has reached its borrowing limit.
