Muri Station history taking shape

You might have noticed that the old shelter building on the southbound platform of the former Muri railway station has a new coat of paint and is looking pretty flash. This is thanks to the Greater Wellington Regional Council, which is handing ownership of the building over to the Residents Association. It’s the culmination of a long process that began when GWRC closed the station in 2011.

The plan is to make it part of He Ara Pukerua heritage project, and it will have the Pukerua Bay railway history on display in the shed. In the meantime, we have a temporary sign…

Temporary heritage sign on Muri Station shelter.
It was installed by our friend Bill Inge, Village Projects Coordinator from Porirua City Council.

Committee member David Olsen died suddenly a couple of weeks ago. The RA acknowledged his contribution to the Committee and to the community. David originally came onto the committee two years ago to get action on trucks using their engine brakes within the village. His persistence resulted in more signage, and a greater awareness of the issue with roading authorities. He was a very helpful member of the committee and we will miss his practical contributions. We would like to extend our sympathy and condolences to Jenny and the rest of his family.
