Wellington Metro Upgrade Phase 2

The Wellington Metro Upgrade will add capacity and increase resilience on the Wellington rail network.

As part of Phase 2, we are replacing the overhead line system that supplies power to Metlink’s commuter trains on Wellington’s Hutt Line. The completion of these works includes replacing 1,274 timber poles with steel masts, renewal of 38km of overhead wires and installing an underground conduit route for combined services, making a safer, more reliable service.
