Metro rail master plan revealed By JIM CHIPP A Treasury briefing paper to the cabinet before this year s budget was released last week, revealing the Government and regional council s plans for Wel- lington rail. The paper presented to cabi- net by Transport Minister Steven Joyce in February sought authority to negotiate a deal with the council to complete renovations of Wellington s rail system. Although Greater Wellington regional council and the Govern- ment have yet to sign a deal, several of its likely terms were spelled out in the paper. As has been announced, Greater Wellington will take over ownership of the Ganz Mavag units and refurbish them at ratepayers expense, and KiwiRail will own the tracks, signals and electricity supply. Greater Wellington would competitively tender the oper- ation of the trains. Introducing competition will incentivise improved services and lower costs compared to the current situation where Kiwi- Rail are the only potential sup- plier, the paper said. Moving towards contestable tendering is the a key element of the Metro Rail Operation Model. The Government also appears to want the 30-year-old Ganz Mavag units renovated locally. The $80 million refurbishment of the Ganz Mavag units would provide con- siderable work over the medium term for the KiwiRail Woburn workshop. The Government also wants to reduce the New Zealand Transport Agency contribution to commuter rail costs from 60 per cent to 50 per cent over seven to 10 years, to bring it in line with bus service subsidies. It wanted track access charges to increase from $7.9 million per year to $15.2 million in the next year and $15.8 million in two years time It also wanted Greater Wel- lington to fund local rail operations without seeking further assistance from the Crown. The paper noted that upgrades essential to the oper- ation of the Matangi trains are now almost complete, but that some work had been intention- ally deferred, including the Ganz Mavags refurbishment, at $80 million; renewal of the remainder of the overhead power system, at $56 million; and renewal of old platforms, at $9 million. Greater Wellington council- lors discussed the future of the Ganz Mavag units in non-public business in their meeting last Wednesday. The council and the Govern- ment are due to sign this morn- ing and to announce the agree- ment later.
