    Six log wagons will today be added to the daily freight train service between Whanganui and New Plymouth, in a bid to reduce log trucks on the road

    Six log wagons will today be added to the daily freight train service between Whanganui and New Plymouth, in a bid to reduce log trucks on the road


    The service will enable 45 thousand logs a year to be transported to Port Taranaki for storage and export.

    KiwiRail Group chief executive Greg Miller says the addition of log wagons on freight trains will avoid the need for 27 hundred truck trips on regional roads.

    He says the use of rail will also reduce road maintenance costs and transport emissions.
