Papakura to Pukekohe rail track and path developments Papakura to Pukekohe rail track and path developments

Proposed developments

Over the next 30 years, it's expected that an extra 130,000 people will call southern Auckland home.

To keep up with demand and allow more frequent journeys, KiwiRail wants to extend the third rail track and build a fourth track between Papakura and Pukekohe.

Auckland Transport is also preparing for future demand. We're proposing the development of a walking and cycling path in the vicinity of the rail corridor between Drury and Pukekohe.

To prepare for this development, KiwiRail and Auckland Transport are proposing to protect the land that will be needed in the future.

Public consultation on route protection has closed. Find out more about the proposals and the feedback we received.

In mid-2024, we will contact property owners who may be affected. KiwiRail and Auckland Transport plan to lodge their Notices of Requirement later this year or in early 2025.
