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.

Princes St and Eden Cr intersection - Minor Safety Improvements Princes St and Eden Cr intersection - Minor Safety Improvements

Consultation status: closed 9 November 2017

Proposal reference: RTV-106

We are proposing to improve and upgrade the existing pedestrian crossing on Princes Street at the junction with Eden Crescent and Shortland Street by:

  • Installing a new pram crossing with tactile paving.
  • Building out (extending) the kerb on either side of the crossing.
  • Removing the existing pedestrian island and installing a new raised pedestrian island.

We are also proposing to install a new pedestrian pram crossing on Eden Crescent (at the junction with Princes Street) with raised pedestrian island and tactile paving.

The existing crossing on Princes Street near the intersection with Eden Crescent and Shortland Street is poorly laid out and the distance to cross is long. Building out the kerbs will reduce the crossing distance. It will also mean cars have to slow down before turning left into Princes Street as it will be a sharper bend.
There are currently no pedestrian crossing facilities on Eden Crescent at this intersection despite a high amount of pedestrian movement.
