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.

Sims Road, Penrose - No stopping at all times restrictions Sims Road, Penrose - No stopping at all times restrictions

Consultation status: closed 3 April 2017

We are proposing to install No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) for 220 meters along the western kerb on Sims Road.

Why the changes are required

Vehicles are currently parking on both sides of the road and there is not sufficient room for large trucks to have two-way traffic flow.
