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.

Colonial Road, Chatswood - No stopping at all times restrictions Colonial Road, Chatswood - No stopping at all times restrictions

Consultation status: closed 9 December 2016

We are looking to extend the existing No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) on two bends in Colonial Road on both sides of the road.

Why changes are required

This proposal is a result of both vehicle accessibility and visibility concerns on the bends as there have been reports of safety issues, including of large trucks experiencing near-misses.
