The first of the trains is now being tested and could be on the tracks at any time of the day or night.
The new trains are quieter and accelerate faster, so everyone needs to take care.
The electric train safety campaign features; local press advertising, radio, online advertising (linked to the video) street posters and billboards. There is also a mail-out going to 18,000 households especially around railway tracks in South Auckland where most of the early testing is taking place.
Safety is a primary concern for Auckland Transport, KiwiRail and Transdev during the testing and roll-out of Auckland’s new trains.
