Architect / Designer Jasmax
The Northern Busway pedestrian overbridge has become an iconic feature of the Auckland northern motorway.
Vistalite North Harbour worked closely with Jasmax Architects to ensure that which ever system was used could cope with the high winds and heavy pedestrian use.
The Baltic Flushglaze system was chosen for its proven ability to deliver in commercial applications such as this, with over 40 years of history under the BALTIC™ Commercial (formally Oakley) brand, Flushglaze by Altus Window Systems is a proven product. BALTIC™ Commercial is well known as a leader in design solutions for curtain wall façade.
The project consisted of three bus stations, car parking and a 120m pedestrian bridge constructed over a fully operating six lane motorway.
The pedestrian bridge was relatively easy from a manufacturing perspective but was particularly challenging from a logistics and installation requirement.
The Northern Busway is a segregated busway with dedicated park-and-ride facilities that runs along the eastern side of the Northern Motorway, linking the North Shore with the northern end of the Auckland Harbour Bridge. The busway consists of two-way lanes running between Constellation Park & Ride station and Akoranga Station, and from Akoranga Station a southbound-only lane that joins the Auckland Harbour Bridge approaches just south of the Onewa Road on-ramp system.
