Huntly Train Station

Huntly train station project

A train is coming to Huntly! Coming in mid-2020, a passenger train service between Hamilton and Auckland will stop at Huntly.

Waikato Regional Council is coordinating the new service, but we are in charge of upgrading the Huntly station ready for the train to stop there. For more information on the new service, visit here.

The Huntly station

The existing Huntly station platform will be upgraded before the train service starts. The upgrade includes a shelter, security cameras and lighting.  A park and ride facility next to the station (entrance from Glasgow St) will also be ready in time for the service.

The station platform upgrade and work on the park and ride facility is expected to start in March 2020. Work is due to start on this project on 9 March. A site blessing will be done by local hapu.

Once KiwiRail give us permission to work around the tracks, it will be all go. Part of the rail track will be removed to make way for the extended platform.

The project is due to be finished towards the end of June 2020.
