Sturges Road railway station in Henderson is on the Western Line of the Auckland railway network. It has a park and ride facility available.


The station was opened on 30 April 1934, with other improvements to the Northern Line services.

For many years this station's name was mis-spelt as Sturgess Road. The road was named after a local family living in the area in the 19th century called Sturges, but the incorrect spelling remained in use for many decades until it was corrected in the 1990s.


Western Line suburban train services, between Swanson and Britomart, are provided by Transdev Auckland on behalf of Auckland Transport (AT).
