Train Line Closure


To Our Valued Clients,

Please see below update received from Port of Tauranga this morning. 


Please be advised that there is a closure of the North Island main trunk line in effect.

There is a peat fire at Whangamarino ( north Waikato ) on both sides of the train track that has caused the closure. The fire was attended by the Fire service and Kiwi Rail staff last night and there is a team from Kiwi Rail on site this morning to assess the track condition and advise.

At this stage there are no trains running between MetroPort and Port of Tauranga.

Please accept our apologies for this service disruption, and inconvenience that it may cause.

We will advise further when we have had an update from Kiwi Rail.


Keeping You Informed!
