150 Years of Rail in New Zealand

Posted on 10 September 2013
150 Years of Rail in New Zealand

2013 sees the 150th anniversary of rail in New Zealand. To celebrate, KiwiRail are putting on open days across the country. Over the years we have established a strong relationship with KiwiRail as one of their biggest customers.

‘The synergies of improved service from KiwiRail coupled with our investment in new rail-served depots, benefits our customers, the economy and our country, through reduced carbon emissions and removing freight from congested roads’
– Don Braid, Mainfreight 2013 Annual Report

Rail is a key aspect of New Zealand’s transport network and industry in general. This is why the majority of our domestic freight depots have rail-sidings and why increasing rail access is a critical factor in all our development decisions.

Mainfreight is joining the anniversary festivities by putting on a free BBQ at the following open days:

Celebrating this milestone for New Zealand is a great way to highlight the importance of rail to the public. 

KiwiRail have created a special website for the anniversary. This will give you all the information you need to join in the celebration.
