DIGGING IN: Albany ward councillor Wayne Walker turns the first sod at the Hibiscus Coast Busway Station in Silverdale.

The wheels are moving on the Hibiscus Coast Busway Station with first stage construction starting.

Councillors and officials turned the sod to mark the start of work last Friday at a 5am ceremony in Silverdale.

The first stage includes a signalled intersection on Hibiscus Coast Highway, an interim car park for 100 cars and busway station.

Construction is expected to be completed by June.

Second stage construction is scheduled for November 2013 and May 2014.
