Sturges Road railway station in Henderson is on the Western Line of the Auckland railway network. It has a park and ride facility available.

History[edit]

The station was opened on 30 April 1934, with other improvements to the Northern Line services.[2][3]

For many years this station's name was mis-spelt as Sturgess Road; the road was named after a local family living in the area in the 19th century called Sturges, but the incorrect spelling remained in use for many decades until it was corrected in the 1990s.

Services[edit]

Western Line suburban train services, between Swanson and Britomart, are provided by Transdev Auckland on behalf of Auckland Transport (AT).
