New trains run­ning

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Welling­ton’s new Matangi trains have be­gun ser­vice on the Kapiti line. The trains have been run­ning on the Hutt Val­ley line since May. The Korean-built trains first de­liv­ered Porirua’s morn­ing peak-hour com­muters on Au­gust 24, and since then have been work­ing four non­peak hour ser­vices a day. Forty-two of a to­tal 96 cars have ar­rived in New Zealand, and this week Greater Welling­ton Re­gional Coun­cil hopes to put a 30th car into ser­vice. The trains have been plagued by de­lays, but are get­ting pos­i­tive feed­back, coun­cil chair­woman Fran Wilde says.
