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.

Fanshawe and Daldy Street intersection Fanshawe and Daldy Street intersection

In partnership with the Waitematā Local Board, Auckland Transport (AT) is making safety improvements around Fanshawe Street and Daldy Street. These changes will make it easier and safer for pedestrians and bus users to move through the area and connect with public transport.

Features

  • Moving the existing push-button pedestrian crossing on Fanshawe Street closer to the intersection with Daldy Street.
  • A new push-button pedestrian crossing for Daldy Street.
  • Red LED road studs on Fanshawe Street that switch on whenever the intersection traffic lights are red, as a reminder to drivers.
  • Lengthening the Fanshawe Street bus stop (by Victoria Park) by around 15 metres. The shelters will be extended and repositioned to the back of the footpath.
  • A new entrance into Victoria Park from the bus stop that links with the park’s existing paths. The entrance will be designed in collaboration with local iwi.

Timeline

Construction begins on Monday, 16 May 2016, with completion expected in early July 2016.

Hours of work will generally be Monday to Saturday, 7am to 9pm, however there may be occasions when contractors need to work outside these hours.

As a result of construction, noise levels will be higher than normal. We will try and minimise loud or disruptive activities as much as possible and will notify the community in advance of any after-hours construction activity.
