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 four new raised table crossings surrounding the roundabout on Corinthian Drive. The crossings will have raised speed tables, catch pits and an extended footpath.

We have received funding from developers to improve Corinthian Drive and have chosen to focus on pedestrian improvements.

Feedback

Thank you everyone for your feedback.

The proposal received mixed feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed with minor changes to the next stage of detailed planning.

Specific feedback and proposed solution

  • Request for funds to be put towards parking provision instead. AT is investigating parking as a separate issue here. The funding is being used to improve the safety for vulnerable road users at present, as well as in the long term (as the area develops).
  • Request for minor changes to the proposal; suggestion the median strip proposed is too wide for the carriageway and recommendation that the raised table crossing should be a zebra crossing. Due to limited funds available we will be proceeding with the roundabout zebra crossings to detailed design. All other aspects of the proposal will be assessed in the future.
  • Request for additional works. If you would like your request to be considered by AT for future development works, please fill in a feedback form or report a problem to be fixed.

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work between July 2018 and June 2019, subject to further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will issue 48-hour notices to all affected residents prior to construction work.
