The Rail and Maritime Trade Union (RMTU) has given notice of its intent to commence industrial action from Monday 26 February to Friday 16 March.

Auckland Transport and Transdev have developed a temporary timetable to minimise disruption and provide consistent rail services on these lines during this period.

Customers can expect Southern, Western and Eastern line weekday peak train services at 20-minute intervals, with inter-peak and off-peak services running as normal. Many trains on these services will run with six cars, which can hold 900 passengers, to help reduce impact.

Onehunga and Pukekohe weekday train services and weekend train services across all lines will remain on their usual timetable.

Ferry and bus services will operate as normal.

We are proposing to install broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times restrictions) on Hohipere Street, this will result in the loss of some on-street parking.

We are responding to requests to improve driver safety and accessibility in Hohipere Street. Cars that park in this narrow area are blocking the visibility of drivers, and are obstructing a driveway.

Feedback

The proposal received positive feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.

Specific feedback

  • A request that Hohipere St be converted to Pay and Display parking to better control parking demand and availability in the area. We have established paid parking in other parts of Eden Terrace and we intend to extend to this area as part of our programme of future works. We will begin public consultations once these plans have been formalised.
  • A request for parking restrictions (broken yellow lines) to be installed on Hohipere St from the SKHY building to Citta apartments. These restrictions are requested to prevent large vehicles from blocking access and visibility in Hohipere St. The area between the SKHY building and Citta apartments is an vehicle access way. We recommend reporting illegal parking to our parking enforcement call centre, which operates 24 hours, 7 days a week on 09 355 3553.
  • Concern for the loss of on-street parking, which is reported to be limited in this area. Parking is not normally permitted within 6 metres of an junction so the removal of parking in this location is appropriate. It is important to maintain driver visibility and safety in this area. No changes will be made to our proposal to install broken yellow lines (parking restrictions).

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work in the 2017/18 financial year, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will notify all affected residents prior to construction work.
