Community gives input and gets update on the airport rail station

The public gave their input on the rail stations planned for the airport area on Tuesday night.

This will impact residents and businesses near the Honolulu airport, Pearl Harbor naval base and Lagoon Drive.

They want to protect existing neighborhoods but enhance them, make them more walkable, bikeable, gathering spaces, useable parks, active street scape, places to go and hang out, have dinner and meet friends but that’s in every single neighborhood so far,” Transit Oriented Development Administrator Harrison Rue.

“There will be some tweaking especially on the airport station because of the distance of the station to the actual gates. The airport gates. The airport check in counter and so forth. The parking with in the airport and the lagoon area is a major issue,” said Fred Spencer, who works in the airport area.

There will be 19 rails stations along the city’s 20-mile rail transit route.
