Could the government be going off the rails, literally?
Amidst a budget that could have, but did not ease Manawatu’s transport challenges, we have a claim that the Palmerston North rail services continue to be at risk.

It’s time we push for a better, greener connection with the capital, electrifying the line, phasing out unhealthy diesel locomotives, and restoring road safety by putting the bulk of city to city freight on the rails. Brent Barrett Palmerston
