Would a commuter train service to Auckland work?


Waikato councils are planning to have another look at starting a commuter train service to Auckland. The service has been tried before and failed. However, growth in areas such as Pokeno, Te Kauwhata and Tuakau, the number of people driving between Hamilton and Auckland daily and congestion on the southern motorway has some people suggesting it’s time for another look. What do you think? Would a commuter train service to Auckland work? Are we ready to have another go?

Last months results: Will the Hamilton World Rugby Sevens event be a success?

There was plenty of excitement at the news that Hamilton has landed the New Zealand Sevens event for at least two years from 2018. The Sevens was dying at Wellington and we asked whether Hamilton could resurrect the event and make it a success. Waikato Business News readers responded dramatically with 100 percent confident the crowds will flock along. It doesn’t get any clearer than that.
