Govt urged to stop changes to Overlander

Related

The Government is being urged to stop KiwiRail's planned changes to the Overlander service.

Manawatu and Rangitikei residents have begun a petition asking the Government to stop the company cutting 12 stops from the Auckland to Wellington service.

Petition organiser and Rangitikei district councillor Richard Aslett says the petition is drawing support from all around the North Island.

"The only person who was slightly hesitant was saying that we do need to do something about increasing the passenger numbers and I agree with that, we do need to work with KiwiRail but first and foremost, they need to reverse this decision to chop the stations."

The petition will be presented to Parliament later this month.
