Gisborne's Mayor will tomorrow deliver a petition to Parliament that's signed by 8000 people, calling for Government to save Gisborne's railway line.
The future of the line between Gisborne and Napier remains uncertain as KiwiRail continues its work to assess its long-term economic viability.
Local Gisborne resident Ruth Romero says she's travelling to Wellington to show Prime Minister John Key how much the rail line means to her.
"What really got me started on it, was the bad weather that we had took out the gorge, and then it took out the roads down south to Napier and up around the coast as well, and we were virtually cut off."
Supporters of the line will be at parliament from 1 o'clock.
