The first run of a new passenger rail service wasn't as smooth as anticipated after children threw rocks at the train.

The new rail service train Te Huia, which will operate from Waikato to Auckland, was making its way through Ngaruawahia on its maiden test run to Papakura on Monday when rocks were thrown at it.



The window was toughened glass, which shattered but held, and while the financial cost was small, throwing rocks at trains was an unacceptable and irresponsible act, a KiwiRail spokesman said. Residents on a Ngaruawahia social media page expressed their frustration at this happening in their community. “We as a community should not tolerate this type of behaviour as it impacts on us all.



Completely correct you change behaviour by changing consequence, find them and discipline them harshly



It is becoming very hard to be not surprised at this level of destruction that is caused by residents in this town that houses the Maori king. The reason the window was broken was not because of the ancestral skill of the inhabitants who made the moa extinct but the train has to go slow because they do not want to kill children jumping off the rail bridges. Lives have been lost over time on this bridge discipline your children or divert the line down the expressway away from the problem



The lives of your mukapuna and tameriki matter, BLM, all lives matter

Hi Neighbours,

An Auckland trucking company wishes to dump millions of cubic metres of industrial waste in a proposed site in Huntly, close to the only 'swimmable' lake left in the Waikato region. In 2012, a Waikato Regional Council scientist compared the nutrient levels in Waikato lakes to 1316 others globally and found them to be among the worst. This indicator has not shifted in the eight years since.

What do you think about the proposal?
