Between 26 December and 10 January, we made good progress on replacing old rail in all the Kāpiti Line tunnels.

Re-railing works are now complete in half of Tunnel 2 (between Ngauranga and Glenside) and all of Tunnels 3 to 6 (from Pukerau Bay to Paekākāriki).

Renewing the infrastructure means fewer speed restrictions on the line. Thank you to KiwiRail staff, residents and commuters for your patience during these works.

    Big thanks to Kiwirail and contractors for the work over the summer break. Next Christmas will be the Remutaka Tunnel.
