KiwiRail manages approximately 18,000 hectares of property associated with the rail network.
We take our position as the guardians of New Zealand’s rail corridor seriously, and work hard to continue to improve safety around our tracks and trains.
We prefer to use railway land in ways that supports freight and passenger rail traffic. We also consider leasing or other interim uses for railway land that is not currently used for operations.
Everyone who uses rail land needs to have a legal agreement in place giving them the right to do so.
