Auckland Transport has launched a campaign to push the safety message around its new electric trains.
The first of the trains is now being tested and could be on the tracks at any time of the day or night.
The new trains are quieter and accelerate faster, so everyone needs to take care.
- Always cross at proper crossings
- Watch and listen for bells at crossings
- Always look both ways
- Stay off the tracks
- Pay attention to train horns
- Stay behind the yellow lines on platforms
The electric train safety campaign features: local press advertising, radio, online advertising (linked to the video) street posters and billboards. There is also a mail-out going to 18,000 households especially around railway tracks in South Auckland where most of the early testing is taking place.
Safety is a primary concern for Auckland Transport, KiwiRail and Transdev during the testing and roll-out of Auckland’s new trains.
