Scoop reports that infrastructure work across the Auckland metro rail network is set to ramp up over the Christmas period during a network wide shut down. As Aucklanders head out of the city on holiday, work on several projects is scheduled across the network to take advantage of the quieter period. AT Executive General Manager Integrated Networks, Mark Lambert, says, “Once again AT wishes to acknowledge the disruption that these works have had on our customers. We will continue to provide Rail Replacement Bus services across the network throughout the shutdown, including New Year’s Eve, when many Aucklanders will be wanting to spend time with their friends and loved-ones.”
