Auckland's Rail Corridor Project

rubbish along the old rail corridor

The Manukau Beautification Trust is contracted to maintain 25 kms of rail corridor from Te Mahia to Newmarket, including the branch-off to Sylvia Park. 

Before we started work on the rail corridor, sections of it used to look like the photo on the right.  We've filled hundreds of bags of rubbish, removed acres of weeds and painted sections of fenceline so that rail travellers can enjoy a much more pleasant commute!


Eradication of tagging has been a large part of the rail corridor project. The photo on the right shows a tagged section of the rail corridor.  The photo on the far right shows the same wall, repainted with a stunning train mural.

Replacement of tagged areas with murals has proven an extremely effective deterrent to future tagging.

Any queries regarding the rail corridor can be directed to Anita Curlett at the Manukau Beautification Charitable Trust, phone 269 4080.
