I surprised they didn't go for a new build, shipyards around the world are begging for business, prices are low low low right now.

Expecting an announcement in the Budget re: extension of the Auckland electrification to Pukekohe and serious design studies into a massive regional rail upgrade of the Golden Triangle including re-instating the old Rotorua line and extending it to Taupo.

I am guessing he is basing it on this

But then he seemed to reveal a budget item. He said he was more interested in extending the electrification of the rail line into Hunua, by which he meant the National-held Hunua electorate that stretches around the Bombay Hills. In other words, Pukekohe. Joyce doesn’t say things like that randomly. Electrification to Pukekohe is already on the government’s 10-year plan. Hot tip: watch for an early date and financial commitment in the budget on May 25.

So if Pukekohe is electrified how long is the remaining length of non-electricfication left to Hamilton?

How much of the railway between Papakura and Hamilton is double tracked? Is the alignment good for reasonable speeds?

How about from there to Tauranga?
