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.

Provide your feedback

We're running a public consultation on route protection to enable the future four-tracking of the rail corridor and a walking and cycling path. The consultation is open until Sunday 21 April 2024.

Find out more about these proposals and provide feedback.
