Travel plan needed for BLACKCAPS vs India, cricket test

The BLACKCAPS will play India in an international test match at Eden Park from Thursday 6 February to Monday 10 February.

Bus, train, cycling, driving and walking are all options to get to the stadium. Whatever your travel option we advise you plan ahead particularly as the test starts on Waitangi Day and trains will not be operating this weekend.

Travel is not included with your cricket test ticket.

To help plan your day out at the cricket and for timetable information and services go online.

Trains to the cricket

Trains will operate to scheduled timetables on Thursday 6 (Waitangi Day, public holiday timetable),Friday 7 and Monday 10 February. However all trains will be replaced by rail buses on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 February.

If you are coming from the west, rail replacement buses will operate to a regular weekend timetable stopping at all stations. The same for your return home (please check if you’re going to Waitakere Station).

From Britomart, rail replacement buses will operate to a regular weekend timetable stopping at all stations. Standard fares apply.

Also from Britomart a direct bus to Eden Park will be running. Take it easy and return to the city on the same bus service by purchasing a $5 return wristband on the day from Britomart.

For everyone else we recommend after the match, if you want to go to the city or to a train station along the way, catch a regular rail replacement bus from stop 8211 on New North Road (outside Ray White).

We also recommend you check bus stop locations and signage to ensure you board the correct service. All buses will be marked either Rail Buses or Special Shuttle bus to indicate their route. All valid tickets and passes currently accepted on trains can be used on rail bus replacements.

Please allow for extra time.

Bus services to the cricket

Bus services along New North Road and Sandringham Road will operate to their scheduled timetables. Standard fares apply.

Walk or cycle to the cricket

Eden Park is only 4km from the city centre and cycle racks can be found around the stadium. Due to the large number of people travelling by train we advise cyclists not to take their bike on the train.

Drive to the cricket

Some roads around Eden Park will be closed or have restricted access. Only residents and their visitors will be able to access and park in certain streets, so drivers should check they have parked correctly before heading to the stadium.

Limited mobility parking areas are available on Cricket Avenue.

Rail electrification work

Given the significant amount of work to be done, closures on Auckland's rail network by KiwiRail will be a regular occurrence for the foreseeable future. Works are generally scheduled to minimise disruption to peak-hour commuter services and carried out at weekends, public holidays and evenings when there are usually fewer people travelling.

Gordon Campbell:
On The Inadequate Response To Sexual Violence Prevention

On combatting sexual violence, the government has finally begun to undo some of the problems that were of its own making. Early in March, ACC launched the Integrated Services for Sensitive Claims scheme – a package aimed at improving the attitudes of ACC staff towards sexual violence victims, and offering them more substantive support.

Hopefully, this will help to reverse the damage done with the insensitive, punitive ACC policy put in place by the incoming Key government in 2009, which in some parts of New Zealand, saw 90 per cent of sexual violence victims being turned away by ACC. More>>
