Te Ākitai Waiohua Plaque

The commemorative plaque for Te Ākitai Waiohua Rangatira Ihaka Takaanini was unveiled at the opening of Wiri Depot on 5 July 2013. 

The plaque is mounted on stone quarried from Wiri Mountain (Matukutururu) and is found outside of the Wiri Maintenance and Stabling Facility bordered by Roscommon and Wiri Station Roads in Wiri, Auckland. Built partially on the old Winstone's quarry, Wiri Depot is a new site where the electric trains of Auckland's growing train network will be held and maintained. 

Pictures of the plaque can be found under the gallery
