Bring Back Onehunga Trains To Britomart

Published on 31/07/2022 at 9:15 am.

A public meeting will be held this Sunday 31st July questioning Auckland Transport’s unilateral decision to cut all Onehunga to Britomart train services and force rail users to alight at Newmarket and have to wait for another train to continue their journey into Britomart.

The meeting will have guest speakers from the Public Transport Users Association (PTUA), Campaign for Better Transport (CBT) and NZ Transport 2050 Inc – all who have come together to fight the poorly thought out decision, and question why AT had no consultation with the public or disclose the alternatives to “decapitating” Onehunga to Britomart rail services.

Organisers have also invited community groups and Waitemata and Gulf Ward candidate, former Councillor of Auckland Council and former Chair of Auckland Regional Council, Mike Lee to speak – as he was the key person to having the Onehunga line reopened in 2010 after 30 years of it being closed to passengers.
