Tenders are being called for to carry out the project after the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Auckland Transport, the Auckland Council, the New Zealand Transport Agency, KiwiRail and Auckland International Airport. NZTA will fund the first stage, known as the south-western airport multi-modal corridor project. Phase one will investi- gate improvements to road, bus and rail and the need and feasibility for any work. The second stage will further assess the preferred routes. More passengers are taking trains A record nine million trips were made last year by Aucklanders who catch the train. The impressive pat- ronage figures have been boosted by those who travelled to the U2 con- certs and the city's Santa Parade. Rail use has increased 14 percent on the pre- vious 12 months. That's equivalent to an extra 20,000 jour- neys being made each week. Auckland Transport chief executive David Warburton says the number of people getting on trains is increasing quickly. A number of im- provements have been made to services and rail infrastructure. For example last year six new or upgraded stations opened, includ- ing major new stations at Newmarket and New Lynn. The Onehunga line was also reopened after 37 years and Kingsland received an upgrade to ready it for Rugby World Cup 2011.'' Mr Warburton says timetable improvements have helped, as has an increase in the number of train carriages. Rail patronage is expected to reach 10 million by the end of this year. Driver dies after chase A police chase which unfolded on Auckland's Karangahape Rd last Wednesday ended with devastating conse- quences as the driver of a stolen car died in a crash a short time later. Timoti Mohi, 15, died shortly after 1am after he failed to stop for police at 12.50am on January 5. Mr Mohi was driving a Nissan Sylvia and entered the southern motorway from K Rd. Police abandoned the chase because of the vehicle reaching high speeds. The fleeing vehicle was found further up the motorway near the Mar- ket Rd off-ramp where it had hit a power pole. A teenage passenger from the car is in Auck- land Hospital with leg injuries. Police say it is likely that Mr Mohi would still be alive if he had stopped when first signalled to do so.The incident began when he and a friend were seen acting suspiciously near cars in Sussex St, Grey Lynn. A nearby police dog unit was dispatched and two stolen vehicles, including one being driven by Mr Mohi, fled the area. Acting district com- mander chief inspector John Palmer says the tragedy was completely avoidable. Anyone who is requested by police to stop their vehicle should do so and face the conse- quences of their behav- iour,'' he says. Making the decision to flee at speed has had fatal consequences for too many people and their grieving families.'' The Independent Po- lice Conduct Authority has been notified of the incident. The incident brings the holiday road toll to 13 and includes six crashes with alcohol suspected to be a factor, seven crashes with speed as a factor and two crashes with driver inat- tention suspected. Marine weather 24/7 Mariners in all areas of Coastguard's Northern Region can receive the latest marine weather information 24-hours every day by simply turning on their marine radio. The addition of Hokianga now brings the number of Coastguard's NowCasting broadcasting sites in the region to nine, allowing boaties to access real-time, spoken information on weather conditions at critical locations within the VHF radio cover- age area and broadcasts the updates continuously on a range of marine VHF radio channels. The service provides up-to-the- minute local marine wind strength as well as marine weather forecast, local tide times and heights and local safety messages as may be required. The Coastguard NowCasting service improves marine safety by providing mariners, both professional and rec- reational, with a continuous weather information stream enabling them to make better decisions about commenc- ing or continuing their journeys.
