Dear customer,

Please see below notice received from Port of Tauranga today.


Kiwi Rail will be undertaking maintenance work on the North Island Main Trunk Line ( NIMT ) on the 7th of July. This will result in a partial closure of the NIMT for approximately 12 hours.

Unfortunately this closure will result in reduced services running between MetroPort and Tauranga on the 7th of July.

We have been working with Kiwi Rail to provide as much capacity as possible prior to this period, with a focus on maximising export capacity to Tauranga Container Terminal as well as delivery of prioritised import cargo to MetroPort. At this stage we are up to date with export cargo and import cargo to MetroPort and expect the impact to be minimal.

This work has been planned at this time to have the least impact possible for all of our customers, however please accept our apologies for any inconvenience that may be caused from this required outage.


Keeping You Informed!
