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.

Tamaki Dr, Kohimarama - Proposed pedestrian refuge Tamaki Dr, Kohimarama - Proposed pedestrian refuge

Consultation status: closed 13 February 2018

Proposal reference: MIP1718-021

We are proposing to install a pedestrian crossing facility outside 197 Tamaki Drive including a pedestrian refuge, associated crossings, shortening of the existing bus stops, and limited 'No Stopping at All Times' (NSAATs) parking restrictions.

Why the changes are needed

There is high pedestrian demand for a crossing facility at this location and the proposal supports pedestrian connectivity for bus patrons. We are proposing to shorten the existing bus stops to comply with our code of practice and in order to provide adequate sight distance for pedestrians waiting at the crossing. The broken yellow lines on either side of the crossing facility will support the sight distance for pedestrians using the crossing.
