North Auckland Rail Line Social Impacts Questionnaire

Kia ora to everyone interested in the future of the North Auckland and Dargaville Branch Railway Lines.

  Below, for you perusal, are the questions that have beeen extracted from the NORTH AUCKLAND RAIL LINE SOCIAL IMPACT questionnaire that was sent to us on the 11th of May 2012

The wording of Question number 6  " Are there any other comments you want to make about closure of the line ?" seems to assume a pre-determined outcome

and Question 2 asks for information they may be hoping we don't have.  So...if you think you could provide answers or information which  would help other respondants provide strong affirmation of our railway's value to our region please send them through to us here @ saveourrailnorthland@gmail.com so that we can share them on the pages linked below.

It will also be useful to distribute our answers through our networks such as our  Save the Auckland to Northland Rail Line site on Facebook

- and to publicise it through the print media to ensure maximum participation in this opportunity.

Please consider letting others know that we've uploaded this questionnaire to this web-site.
