A new train is coming to Huntly! Coming in late 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. View more information on the new service.
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 started in March 2020. Local hapu blessed the site before work began.
Part of the rail track will be removed to make way for the extended platform.
Due to COVID-19, the project has been slightly delayed and will be completed towards the end of September 2020, still in time for the service to start.
