Building the case for rail: the Wellington regional rail plan

In February 2009 the Greater Wellington Regional Transport Committee endorsed the Wellington Regional Rail Plan (RRP), thus providing a pathway for the long term development of the region’s rail network. The production of the RRP was a requirement associated with the $500m five year ‘Medium Term Improvement Programme’ investment package for the Wellington suburban rail network. The package, designed to deliver greater service reliability and network capacity, was announced by the Crown and Greater Wellington Regional Council in July 2007. The RRP was developed by Greater Wellington Regional Council in collaboration with primary rail stakeholders; with specialist economic and technical inputs being provided by John Bolland (John Bolland Consulting Ltd) and Alan Burford (AECOM) respectively. This paper provides a specific overview relating to the framework and process methodology adopted to produce the long term rail development plan that will deliver ‘a better rail experience’ for the people of the Greater Wellington region and New Zealand.
