Answer by the Minister for Transport
(Martin Cullen)

REPLY

I propose to take questions 433 and 434 together.

The Railway Procurement Agency (RPA) is currently preparing a detailed implementation plan for the Metro North Line. This will include public consultation which will commence in early 2006.

The final location of stops will be defined through the public consultation and statutory approval process. RPA's current proposal for Metro North includes a mix of underground, at-grade, and elevated alignments.
