From time to time, a rail grinder is deployed on our network to smooth out the rail. The rail grinder corrects the shape and extends the lifespan of the rail track, helping to deliver a more reliable train journey.
For the Auckland and Wellington metro areas, we need to do this work at night when where there are no commuter train services running.
If you live near the rail corridor, it may cause disruption:
We apologise for any inconvenience. Our staff and contractors are mindful of our rail neighbours and will work hard to keep the noise and disruption to a minimum.
The rail grinder is currently operating on the Auckland network at night. For details of dates and locations, please visit this page.
