Letter: Tuakau train station a great idea

I read your article on the new train station in the pipeline for North Waikato in the local news paper the other day. This is an issue I feel very passionate about as my family and I have just moved to Tuakau recently, however due to both of our jobs being in Auckland we have no other choice but to commute by car.

Having a choice to use the train as mode of transport would be fantastic!

I believe it would boost the community and would also give commuters another option. A station in Tuakau will be, in my opinion, a positive step to the growth and development of Tuakau and surrounding areas. You have our support in the new station and I look forward to this plan to be put into action. L. Van Trijp

New train station in the pipeline for North Waikato?


Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
