Demolition of the historic Tawa railway station will begin on Boxing Day, closing the station for four months.

There will be no trains on the Kapiti line from December 26 till January 3.

During that period, trains from Tawa Station will be replaced by buses leaving from Duncan St.

The Tawa community board has been working with Wellington Regional Council to organise alternative parking. There is a possibility of a shuttle bus to link commuters to another station.

A modern structure will replace the 1930s building.

Work will also be carried out on the pedestrian overbridge, which may be closed for a couple of hours at a time.

The Tawa historical society is in the process of planning the art designs that will appear on the 16 panels at the new station.
