Where we are working

KiwiRail and its contractors are always working to maintain and improve Auckland's busy rail network.  Most of this work is done overnight or at weekends when no trains are running - find out more.    

This page is regularly updated to keep our neighbours aware of significant work activity on the network.

Our teams also carry out a wide range of  short-notice essential maintenance activities, often overnight, so trains can keep running safely, which is not always listed here.  They work hard to keep any disturbance to a minimum while they do this.

If you would like to be added to our community database so we can keep you better informed about what is planned, please let us know on our online form.

How this work affects you

You may experience noise and vibration from machinery, lights and vehicles moving around the rail corridor.

We are aware that this may disturb some of our neighbours and we apologise. Our staff and contractors are mindful when working in residential areas and work hard to get the job done as quickly and quietly as possible.
