Reduced services ( Block of Line ) 9th -10th June


Dear Client


Please see below received from Ports of Tauranga today 5th June 2019

***Kiwi Rail will be undertaking maintenance work on the East Coast Main Trunk Line on the 9th and 10th of May. This will result in a complete closure of the ECMT for approximately 36 hours.

Unfortunately this closure will result in significantly reduced services running between MetroPort and Tauranga on the 9th and 10th May.

We are working with KiwiRail to provide as much capacity as possible during this period, with a focus on maximising export capacity to Tauranga Container Terminal as well as delivery of prioritised import cargo to MetroPort. Contingency planning includes operating a road bridge between Hamilton and Tauranga to keep cargo moving as required. To assist with contingency planning export customers who are able to deliver cargo 24 hours prior to the BOL commencing are urged to do so.

Our apologies for any inconvenience caused through this period ***

Keeping You Informed!
