Where we are working

KiwiRail is carrying out a $1billion programme of work to upgrade and modernise Auckland’s metro network. This includes work to replace and repair worn rail across the network.

Rail recovery

Over the next few months we will use a work train to collect old rail from around the Auckland rail corridor.

We expect to undertake this work at night, starting on 11 April

We will begin this work on the Southern Line, between Newmarket and Otahuhu.

The rail will typically be collected once per week, usually occurring on a Thursday (although this may change from time to time).

How this work affects you

You may experience noise and vibration from machinery, lights and vehicles moving around. We are aware that this may disturb some of our neighbours and we apologise for this.
Our staff and contractors are mindful when working in residential areas and work hard to get the work done as quickly and quietly as possible.
The track is replaced or repaired in several phases and our teams may need to return at different times to the track near your property.
Additional work may also be required at a future date to complete the job. Keep an eye on our schedule  below as we update our areas of work.
