Waitakere Central it is.
Today the Waitakere City Council formally resolved to call the new transport interchange in Henderson “Waitakere Central”.
The decision will now be forwarded to the New Zealand Geographic Board which will make a final determination.
To avoid confusion, the Council also decided that the existing Waitakere Rail Station (near Taupaki) should be called “Waitakere Village”.
Mayor Bob Harvey says the name is important in defining the area as the “heart” of the City.
“This isn’t about re-branding or changing Henderson at all,” he says. “It is simply recognising that this is a regionally important complex. Much as people recognise and identify with ‘Britomart’, they will see Waitakere Central as being at the heart of our City.”
