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.

Opanuku Stream shared path Opanuku Stream shared path

Distance: 5km

The Opanuku Stream shared path is one of the award-winning Twin Streams walk and cycleways developed by the former Waitakare City Council. It includes environmental, conservation and community initiatives aimed at protecting the area from floodwater coming down from the Waitakere Ranges.

The route stretches from Great North Road through Palm Heights to Henderson Valley Road. Those seeking a longer ride can also connect into this path from the Henderson Creek shared path and cycle lanes on Triangle Road. The Corban Estate Arts Centre within the historic Corban winery is a good entrance point with ample parking.
