Save the Christchurch – Picton Rail Line

This petition has closed.

The South Island's main rail line has been decimated by huge slips following the magnitude 7.8 earthquake near Kaikoura.

Already there is pressure from groups like the Tax Payers Union to not replace the rail line.

Rail is essential for a sustainable and safe transport system. Moving freight by rail means fewer trucks on the road, fewer crashes, less pollution and ultimately less congestion in our cities and ports.

Add your name and call on the Minister of Transport to commit to funding the rebuild of the South Island rail line.

The Government is coming under pressure to not rebuild the damaged South Island rail line. Call on the Minister to commit to funding the rail rebuild.
